Oshiomhole said that the least government could do for officers saddled with protecting and defending the territorial borders and integrity of the nation was to demonstrate care.
He stressed that the sacrifice and renewed efforts confirmed that the armed forces had played decisive roles in helping to maintain world peace.
He noted that the armed forces had been able to send a clear message that insurgency could not be part of the nation’s national life.
He commended the role of the 81 Air Maritime Group in Benin during the last governorship election, adding that the group had been active since his assumption of office eight years ago.
He stressed that the Air Force had been very active in securing the state and commended the CAF’s initiative and emphasis on officers’ welfare.
