Tinubu vows end to insecurity as NAF unveils attack helicopters

President Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, reiterated his administration’s commitment to ending the insecurity plaguing the country.

The President stated this when he inducted two T129 Attack Combat Helicopters and one King Air Beechcraft 360ER mobility aircraft for use by the Nigerian Air Force.

Represented by his Vice President Kashim Shettima, the President said the acquisition of the helicopters and the induction symbolised the commitment of his administration to the nation’s security.

The induction ceremony held at the 131 Engineering Group Hanger, Nigeria Air Force Base, Makurdi.

The President said that the acquisition and induction of the new platforms would improve NAF’s airpower in the ongoing war against terrorism.

He acknowledged that since its establishment in 1964, “NAF has been playing a critical role in the nation’s security, international operations and humanitarian needs.”

The President said substantial progress had been achieved in the ongoing counterterrorism efforts but noted that there should be no cause for celebration yet until the security challenges were fully addressed.

He called for a change in mindset, strategy and tactics in addressing the menace.
