Addressing them, Air Marshal Abubakar, warned that the Nigerian Armed Forces, have zero tolerance for weakness and any conduct that is inconsistent with service discipline.
He reminded them to imbibe the culture of discipline, absolute loyalty to both civil and military authorities, and to avoid being used by any disgruntled elements in the society.
The Air Force boss, also announced that his administration places a high priority on welfare and capacity building of officers and men of the service.
The induction of the young men and women into the military, is not doubt coming at a time the nation is in dire need of additional manpower for her military needs.
Therefore, as they join their colleagues in the field, it is expected that they stick by the oath they took to protect all law abiding citizens and visitors from both internal and external aggression. (Channels TV)
