The fight against insurgency is yet to be over and it is for this reason that the Chief of Air Staff commissioned some projects in Yola and Maiduguri aimed at ameliorating hardship encountered by personnel and their families.

The Air force boss called on Nigerians to provide useful information to security agencies at all times.

The projects commissioned in Yola and Maiduguri include a 205 wing building/pilots crew room, one bedroom accommodation for corporals and a new apron that will aid the activities of pilots.
