AVM Amao Speech at NAF Passing out Parade of 1,031 additional Recruit
The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Oladayo Amao has charged newly graduated recruits of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), Basic Military Training Course 41/2020 to be innovative and subordinate their personal interests to the Service and the Nation.
He stated this while serving as the reviewing officer at the colourful Passing Out Parade (POP) of 1,031 trainees which took place at the Military Training Centre (MTC), NAF Base, Kaduna. Air Marshal Amao noted that the occasion was another testimony of the commitment of the NAF to operate a professional Service properly structured, appropriately manned and adequately trained to provide security to Nigeria and the Nigerian people. According to the CAS, the graduation of yet another batch of recruits agrees with NAF’s overall strategy of mitigating the challenges of insecurity in the Country.
He went on to state that the 6 months of rigorous training the graduands went through was designed to deliberately expose them to near real-life scenarios which they may encounter in the course of their career. He then urged them to ensure they operate within the ambits of the law and rules of engagement as enumerated in the code of conduct for military personnel engaged in internal security operations as they would be involved in several operations across the country.
He reminded them of the need to respect and protect the innocent and law-abiding civilians whom they are paid to defend. “Treat them with respect and protect their rights. It is by so doing that you will be discharging your professional and constitutional duties”, he said. Air Marshal Amao charged them to submit themselves to civil authority following democratic tenets and should not allow themselves to be used by any subversive element in the society to compromise national security.
