Air Chief of Staff, Air Marshall Sadique Abubakar, has commissioned a 30 X 1 bedroom transit accommodation for Airmen at the 305 Special Mobility Group (SMG) on Thursday in Calabar.

Abubakar, who was represented on the occasion by AVM Isiaka Amao, who is in charge of Policies and Plans, Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Abuja, said that the well-being of the personnel was very critical to the growth of the force.

Abubakar said that when staff are well cared for with good accommodation, they are more likely to do their jobs better.

According to him, the Nigerian Air Force headquarters has more plans for the 305 SMG which he said will be unveiled soon.

“The 305 SMG was established to inspect and secure the southern axis of Nigerian airspace, continuing from the point where the 115 Portharcourt Special Operations Group area of ​​responsibility ends.

“However, the operational services of the Super Puma aircraft are required more in the northeastern part of the country where the air operation is most serious.

“However, that is not to say that you do not need a platform to perform your assigned role as a unit of the Nigerian Air Force.

“It is with this in mind that at NAF headquarters we are doing everything we can to provide at least one more Super Puma helicopter to make sure you have a Calabar domiciled helicopter for the necessary air operation.

“In the meantime, however, 115 Special Operations Group Portharcourt will continue to support you with its platform as needed,” he said.

He noted that cases of kidnapping and armed robbery are still being reported in some parts of the state, adding that the law emphasizes the need for command officers to remain vigilant and alert.

“We cannot lose sight of the fact that we are a fighting force and as such the highest level of vigilance and security must always be maintained in our areas of responsibility,” he said.

Speaking, 305th SMG Calabar Commander Group Captain Abraham Sule said the command took on a new look after the CAS visit in November 2019.

Sule said the joint airmen’s dining room was inaugurated with a huge grant from CAS, while the provision of housing projects for officers and men began.

He said that several projects were being carried out at the base with a view to providing comfortable accommodation and a comfortable environment for the officers and men of the base.

“The CAS has continually placed wellness as its top priority and we sincerely appreciate its tireless commitment to providing infrastructure for the optimal performance and comfort of NAF staff.

“With a deep sense of gratitude, we assure you of our commitment and support for your insight into the NAF,” he said.
