The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshall, Sadiq Abubakar, said providing decent housing for officers, airmen and airwomen remains one of his top priorities.
Abubakar made the remark at the inauguration of 30 flat of two bed room houses for Senior None Commission Officers at the NAF Base Kaduna on Monday.
Nigeria News Agency report the Air Chief was represented by the Air Officer Commanding, Air Training Command, AVM Muhammad Sulaiman.
“Accordingly, providing decent housing for officers, airmen and airwomen remains one of the priorities of HQ NAF Policy thrust, toward ensuring the Nigerian Air Force personnel and their families live in a befitting accommodation and better prepared to respond to various exigencies of the Service.
“Projects like this were initiated in all NAF Bases to ensure the provision of a conducive atmosphere for personnel at their various work places and homes in line with the change agenda of the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“The Nigerian Air Force Base Kaduna being the Premier Base of the NAF and home of Air Training Command is crucial to the successful conduct of aircrew and air operations support training.
“It is therefore appropriate that such a Base receive commensurate attention in terms of the provision of facilities for the general well-being of personnel and their families.
“Accordingly, there are ongoing constructions of new quarters as well as arrangement to address many other areas of infrastructural deficit in the Base.
“Moreover, there are other ongoing projects under construction which include 10 x one officers’ transit quarters and the renovation of 2nd officers transit quarters which will take additional 50 personnel when completed.
“It is hoped that these would create an enabling environment and motivation for personnel to discharge their duties effectively and efficiently’’, he said.
Abubakar said the Federal Government would continue to provide the needed support to sustain the tempo of operations against insurgency, kidnapping and other forms of banditry.
“So must our efforts be sustained to reposition the NAF into a highly professional and disciplined force for effective, efficient and timely employment of air-power in response to Nigerian National Security imperatives’’.
According to him, the human being is the most important in every organisation, as such supporting the personnel appropriately is central to the achievement of success in securing Nigeria’s airspace.
“As such, the administration remains committed to upgrading, reforming and building of new facilities as part of infrastructural development drive in all NAF units.
“I enjoin you all to re-dedicate yourselves and continue to add value toward making the Service more relevant and effective in addressing the current and future security challenges in the country.” Abubakar said.
Earlier the Commander 453 Base Service Group, Air Comdr Idi Sani said the construction of the new houses was a remarkable milestone in CAS’s drive toward improving the living condition of NAF personnel.
Sani added that NAF Base Kaduna would remain very grateful for the supportive and unwavering disposition of the Air Chief towards the provision of shelter and other basic amenities for the Base.
“I wish to inform you Sir that the beneficiaries of this stunning structure have vowed to reciprocate this exceptional gesture with continuous commitment to duties as well as developing and upholding a high maintenance culture’’.
Thai gov’t allows 7 more domestic airports to open
The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) announced on its website that it has granted seven more domestic airports to resume flight operations, effective from Saturday.
The seven domestic airports include Tak, Trad, Nakhon Ratchasima, Narathiwat, Pai, Phetchabun and Sukhothai.
“The CAAT has greenlighted the seven airports to resume domestic flights for now, as according to the Thai government’s relaxation of COVID-19 lockdown measures,” said CAAT director-general Chula Sukmanop, “All airports are not allowed commercial inbound flights yet (flights from overseas).”
The Emergency Decree banning inbound flights are still effective until the end of June.
However, the ban does not apply to state or military aircraft, emergency landing, technical landing without disembarkation, humanitarian aid, medical and relief flights, repatriation flights and cargo flights.
“Let’s ensure amongst ourselves to continue wearing face masks, wash hands regularly and practice social distancing,” said Prayut, “the more we can adjust to the new normal way of life during the COVID-19 pandemic, the more easing on lockdown restrictions.”
Prayut said earlier that the ban on inbound flights must be maintained as Thailand cannot afford a second wave of infections from COVID-19 imports.
Thailand on Saturday reported two additional COVID-19 infections, bringing the total to 3,104 cases.
The Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration said on Saturday that since late May, most new infections were of Thai returnees from overseas.
NiDCOM a major economic asset to Nigeria, says House Committee chair
Hon. Tolulope Akande-Shadipe, Chairman, House Committee on Diaspora Affairs has described the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) as an economic asset to the country.
She disclosed this at the first meeting held between the committee and NiDCOM Management at the State House in Abuja on Friday.
“Diaspora commission is extremely important to Nigeria; we have millions of Nigerians spread across the world.
“We need to begin to harness that asset because it’s a major asset to our nation and if not harnessed, it will be lost forever.
“So it’s imperative that the nation as a whole, respects the impact that diasporas can have on the progress of the nation economically, exchange of know-how and progress in all aspects and spheres of the country’s existence,’’ she said.
She described the mandate as a priority, saying that if the commission was able to achieve that mandate, it would mean a lot to Nigeria.
“The remittances that are being reported do not justify the amount of remittances actually coming into the country.
“If we collaborate better with our fellow Nigerians in the diaspora, there’s no doubt that we’ll be able to document such remittances better.
“We have Nigerians in the diaspora who want to have opportunity to own homes and assets in their homeland, and with a commission like NiDCOM which is a platform for better collaboration that will be useful to them.
“Because a lot of people abroad want to build houses at home, they send money to relatives and these houses never materialised, and a lot of other lost ventures in that line, but with the commission, we can begin to partner for housing projects.
“Hopefully, before the end of this year, all accommodation issue for the commission will be resolved, because I can imagine working in an environment without enough office space.
“Not enough desks and you have people hanging around not being able to be productive, it must be very disheartening for the commission, we pray and we will work toward ensuring that is it resolved,’’ she said.
Responding, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, hairman of NiDCOM, said that achieving set goals could be challenging.
She said that the commission would work with parliament to harness the great potentialities of the diaspora.
Dabiri-Erewa solicited the support of the committee to enable the commission grow by working on the 2021 budget.
According to her, once that is done, the commission will be able to achieve its set mandate.
“We appreciate the diligence of the chairman and members of the committee for the 2020 budget.
“Although we got eight million for re-current expenditure, we are not discouraged because it’s a new commission.
“In fact we are determined to be a revenue generating agency, and we are determined that at the end of the day, we will be able to show that there are a lot of things we can do because we are talking about human capital development.
“So we are hoping that it will rectify the policy.
“We have been on it for three years and we are working with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and when that policy is rectified, we will have a holistic policy that will guide all Diaspora engagements.
“Also we have a programme with the Federal Mortgage Bank where Nigerians in the Diaspora can be abroad and still be able to buy homes wherever they are in the world.
“The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory is allocating a space for the Diaspora Medical City, so that those in the diaspora can have a place where they can access a medical centre of excellence,’’ she said.
Dortmund’s Sancho, Akanji, fined for getting haircuts without face masks
Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and Manuel Akanji were fined an unspecified amount by the German Football League (DFL) on Friday for failing to wear face mask during a visit from a hair dresser this week.
In total, six Dortmund players, including rising star Sancho and Akanji, got their hair cut by the visiting hairdresser, who then asked some of them to take pictures with him.
“It is clear that pro players also need to get their hair cut. But that has to happen in line with the medical and hygiene concept,” the DFL said in a statement.
“The fines are not against the club which is not seen as having a responsibility in this case.”
Bundesliga matches are played without fans and teams must adhere to strict health guidelines that regulate the process and operation of training sessions and games.
The league, with five rounds of matches left in the season, plans to finish by the end of the month.
Sancho also hit the headlines last weekend when he, after scoring, revealed an undershirt with the message ‘Justice for George Floyd’ — an unarmed black man who died in Minneapolis after a white United States police officer knelt on his neck.
Sancho escaped any sanction after the German Football Association said players were free to show their support for protests over Floyd’s death.
Cairo airport to receive 23 flights carrying Egyptians stranded abroad amid COVID-19 pandemic
The flights, with a total of 3,346 Egyptians, would arrive from Britain, Russia, Germany, Kenya, Tanzania, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Lebanon and others, according to state-run Ahram Online news website.
The airport will also receive four domestic flights from the Red Sea resort city of Marsa Alam after the conclusion of the quarantine period of around 400 Egyptian returnees from abroad, Ahram Online quoted sources at the Cairo International Airport as saying.
Egypt suspended the international flights on March 19 to curb the spread of COVID-19. Since then, several thousands of Egyptians returned home from across the world, including the United States, Britain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Turkey, Uganda, Rwanda, Chad and Niger.
Egypt announced its first confirmed COVID-19 case on Feb. 14 and the first death from the highly infectious virus on March 8, both foreigners.
Since March 25, the Egyptian government has been imposing a nighttime curfew, which varied between nine and 13 hours, to curb the spread of the virus.
The current nine-hour curfew will continue until mid-June, when the government will consider easing relevant restrictions amid a coexistence plan to maintain anti-coronavirus precautionary measures while resuming economic activities.
The Egyptian government has started gradual reopening of services and offices, and allowed reopening of about 100 hotels for local tourists with 50-percent capacity after they were given official hygiene safety certificates.

Air Chief urges pioneer NAF nurses to be discipline, proficient
The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar has advised students of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) School of Medical Sciences and Aviation Medicine to be disciplined and proficient in their studies.
The air force boss was represented by the NAF Air Secretary, AVM Mahmoud Ahmad.
According to him, capping and strapping means the students are on their way to becoming members of one of the noblest professions and have subscribed to its ideals of service.
He said that establishment of the school, particularly the college of nursing, was to consolidate the rapid expansion and upgrading of the medical services branch of NAF.
“It is expected that the school will through its trainings, enhance the human capacity of the medical services to meet contemporary health manpower challenges.
“I appreciate the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria for granting us accreditation and approval to commence the training of nurses.
“I have no doubt that the school will make us proud by producing polyvalent nurses for NAF and Nigeria,” the air force chief said.
He noted that NAF expected lots from the nurses in setting standards in terms of loyalty, discipline and performance.
“Our collective commitment to excellence is paramount if the Service is to effectively discharge its constitutional roles.
“The students must take advantage of this opportunity to train and improve themselves.
“Your discipline, proficiency level, hard work, loyalty and perseverance will determine your progress in this Course and the Service in general.
“This is essential for you to provide quality nursing care with integrity, place service before yourself and become excellent in all you do; which is one of our core values,” Abubakar said.
The Commandant of the school, Air Cdr Glenn Nkanang said those capped were student nurses who have successfully completed their Preliminary Training Session Examination.
Nkanang said that the event marked the completion of the first six months training that would qualify them to start wearing the nurses’ cap.
”The best honour for a student nurse is to be capped or strapped.
“This is because, your uniform is going to be complete which is the number one identity of a nurse.
”When your uniform is complete, your status will change and I believe your initiatives, creativity and responsiveness will equally appreciate.
“But mind you, being capped or strapped has not made you a qualified nurse as you still have a long way to go,” he added.

Matawalle dissolves, reappoints local council chairmen as sole administrators in Zamfara
Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara has sworn-in 14 local government council Sole Administrators, less than 24 hours after the state House of Assembly dissolved their offices as council chairmen with the governor’s approval.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the governor has had a running faceoff with the council chairmen who were elected for a three-year tenure under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Matawalle inaugurated the sole administrators at a quiet event in the Government House on Friday in Gusau.
The governor said their performances would be measured and assessed in the next three months to determine whether they deserved to continue or be replaced.
He said the dissolution of the former council chairmen by the state legislature was a result of unsatisfactory performance and negligence of primary responsibility of ensuring the security and safety of the people by some of them.
“We received reports that some of them were handling the issue of security of lives and property of the people under their domains half-heartedly due to parochial political sentiments,” he said.
NAN however reportls that while dissolving the 14 councils at the state assembly, the spokesman of the house, Malam Mustapha Jafaru, alleged in a statement in Gusau that the chairmen of the councils were found wanting in misappropriating relief funds meant for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in their respective areas.
But in a quick reaction to the development, the APC Chairman in the state, Alhaji Lawal Liman, condemned the state government’s action.
Liman noted that even the last local government election that brought in the chairmen was being contested in the court.
“This matter now, is a complete violation of our laws and constitutional provisions, we are going to review the issues as well as seek legal advice then take a stand,” he said.
