Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information made this known in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

Daramola said the one-month long FP-CAGE Course 9/2019, which commenced on Nov. 4 was being conducted by a team of Royal Air Force (RAF) Regiment instructors at the Regiment Training Centre (RTC), NAF Base Kaduna.

“The course is aimed at building additional capacity to ensure the protection of NAF bases and assets as well as other critical national aviation-related facilities, like airports, with a view to further bridging the gap between Air Power projection and Air Power protection,”.

Daramola said that AVM Idi Amin, the Air Officer Commanding Ground Training Command (AOC GTC), expressed satisfaction with the progress of the training.

He urged the participants to make the most use of the opportunity given to them for being selected for the course.

Amin emphasised that upon completing the course on Dec.6, they would be expected to add significant value to ongoing internal security operations across the country.
