The Air Officer Commanding (AOC) Tactical Air Command (TAC) of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), Air Vice Marshal MA Idris, today flagged off a medical assistance programme to meet the medical needs of the recent flood victims in Makurdi, Benue State.

This was disclosed to journalists in Abuja by the Director of Public Relations and Information of the Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya.

The AOC TAC said the commencement of the medical outpost programme was part of the Command's corporate social responsibility and was borne out of the desire to contribute to the medical needs of the flood victims, adding that the NAF would be offering the medical treatment to the flood victims free of charge.

In his remarks, the Executive Governor of Benue State, Chief (Dr) Samuel Ortom, thanked the NAF for its assistance.

Recall that few days ago, following a downpour, many houses in Makurdi were submerged in flood water. The persons affected by the flood were rendered homeless and several medical casualties were recorded.

Thousands of victims of the flood were accommodated at the Makurdi International Market, where the NAF medical outpost programme kicked off today.

The NAF also recently airlifted the Director General of the National Emergency Management Authority NEMA and other officials to Makurdi in response to a Presidential directive.

Meanwhile, the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, has directed the Medical Services Branch of the NAF to provide more drugs and deploy more medical personnel to complement the efforts of the Command, as might be required.
