The Minister of Defence, Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Mansur Dan Ali (retd.), has re-assured the nation that the activities of Boko Haram insurgents would soon be brought to an end.

Delivering an address at the Nigerian Air Force Base, Mando, in Kaduna State after commissioning projects for the Training Command, the minister said he was fully convinced that the Nigerian military has the viable tool in tackling national insecurity.

“I am convinced that the activities of the insurgents will soon be a thing of the past and all areas under occupation will be liberated for people to go about their normal lives.

“I am particularly impressed with the new approach of winning the hearts and minds of the populace through advocacy and outreach programmes of the armed forces as emplaced by the current leadership of Mr President, the Commander-in-Chief.

“I sincerely commend the Nigerian Air Force for the successes recorded in the renewed vigour of routing out the insurgents and effectively degrading their capabilities. I am confident that this fight will bring more people into the fight against the insurgents thereby making the task of our armed forces much easier through the cooperation of the locals, especially in the provision of real time information and intelligence gathering”, Dan Ali said.

In his remarks on the occasion, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal Sadique Abubakar, said in order to overcome the challenges Nigeria faces as a nation, there was need for knowledge, which is why the NAF had decided to invest in training facilities so that officers would have the conducive environment to acquire knowledge.

“We are aware of the fact that this is an era of change and we must change the way we do things, and therefore we quickly put together this infrastructure so that instructor pilots and pilots that are coming in for flight training will have a place to live so that they can pursue their training programmes without difficulties”, he said.
