NAF Collaborative Instincts Have Been Key To A Safe Bauchi - Gov. Mohammed Lauds Air Chief

The relative peace and tranquility being enjoyed within Bauchi State and environs have been partly attributed to the effective collaborative instincts deployed by the Nigerian Air  Force (NAF) and other security agencies in the State. 

Governor of Bauchi State, Senator Bala Mohammed affirmed this when he played host to the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Hasan Abubakar at Government House, Bauchi today,  Monday, 13 May 2024.

Governor Mohammed also singled out NAF's air power support in checkmating the activities of criminal elements in flashpoints such as Alkaleri,Tafawa Balewa and Ningi. 

Governor noted the importance of good governance in curbing the multifaceted security challenges confronting Nigeria, which, he said, has been exercebated by the near absence of local government administration in most states of the federation. 

"The ineffective local government administration, he continued, has also given rise to ungovernable spaces, especially in the north, thereby enabling criminals to hide as they continue in their nefarious activities. 

"The need for local government administrations to be given the relevance they deserve is thus important," he stated.

Earlier, the CAS had recognized and applauded the Governor's uncommon determination to enshrine enduring development in the State through infrastructural development and investments in agricultural projects such as the Special Agro-Industrial Processing Zones (SAPZ) project. 

He went on to note that the SAPZ project was a welcomed initiative that will provide opportunities for food and job security as well as increase the contribution of agriculture to the State's Gross Domestic Product and reduce criminality in the State.

In a press statement signed by Director of Public Relations and InformationAir Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet and made available to SpyeTV pointed out that CAS also took out time to visit the Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji (Dr)  Rilwanu Suleiman Adamu, who praised the Special Operations Command (SOC) for undertaking free medical outreaches in the State

Air Marshal Abubakar was in Bauchi as part of his operational tour of SOC, Bauchi.
