This is contained in a statement issued by the Director of Public Relations and Information, Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Headquarters, Air Commodore Dele Alonge on Monday in Abuja.

The statement said that the Munguno delivered the message on behalf of the president while addressing the NAF personnel in Yola.

"I am telling you this, and you can take it as if it is coming from Mr President himself that you are going to be given everything you require, not only for the operation but for your personal welfare. This is an assurance I want to give you because NAF has brought a lot of noticeable improvements in the war against the terrorists due to the aerial support provided to the ground troops,’’ the NSA was quoted as saying.
