“During the YOC, the officers were groomed in subjects such as General Service Knowledge, Staff Duties, Asymmetric Warfare Principles and NAF Base Defence Concept, among others, to enhance their effectiveness and efficiency,” he said.

He said that during at the graduation, Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, urged the officers to utilise their new knowledge to enhance their performances in subsequent deployments.

Abubakar was represented at the ceremony by the Air Secretary, NAF Headquarters, Air Vice-Marshal Gali Abdulwahab, according to spokesman.

The CAS was quoted as advising the officers to justify the resources invested in them by carrying out their duties diligently and professionally at all times.
