The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS) Air Marshal Oladayo Amao said that the new Service Chiefs will not circumvent the military tradition in their quest to end terrorism in the country.
He also said his administration’s resolve to revert to the military tradition of adherence to seniority and hierarchy in the appointment of officers to head command posts.
Air Marshal Amao made this disclosure in Makurdi while on his maiden tour of Tactical Air Command (TAC).
He argued that “Situations, where subordinate officers are given command appointments ahead of their seniors, does not augur well for the system as it breeds insubordination and indiscipline”.
Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet in a statement noted that the CAS said that there would be no sacred cows when it comes to discipline as those found wanting would be punished as ascribed in the Armed Forces Act.
Air Marshal Amao further said that the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) and other sister Services have agreed to subordinate themselves to the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) under the abled leadership of the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor.
He added that just as it is obtainable in military organizations worldwide, the DHQ is responsible for the command and control of the entire Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) which also means that all ongoing joint operations and Joint Task Forces are directly under the DHQ, and their commanders report directly to the CDS.
‘When we say we are members of the AFN, we mean the three (3), Services represent a single entity.
“When we accept the fact that we the members of the AFN constitute a united entity, the need for rivalry will not arise,” he argued.
The CAS also said that efforts were currently underway to improve the combat efficiency of the NAF and other services to an appreciable level and these efforts have the full backing of the President and Commander -in – Chief of the AFN, President Muhammadu Buhari.
He then enjoined NAF personnel to continue to support the Federal Government in its efforts to equip the NAF and other Services.
