The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) says it will mark its 60 years of steadfast service in the defence of Nigeria’s territorial integrity with a series of activities including a research and development competition and medical outreaches.

According to the NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, AVM Edward Gabkwet, in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, the anniversary celebration would be held from May 14 to May 25.

Gabkwet said the event would include an international conference and exhibition, as well as the third edition of the African Air Forces Forum on May 23 and May 24 in Abuja.

Chiefs of Air Staff from other countries, prominent figures in the defence, aviation and aerospace industries, as well as other stakeholders are expected to grace the occasion, he added.

Gabkwet said that the event, with the theme, ‘Nigerian Air Force at 60: Leveraging Strategic Partnerships in Aerospace Innovations for Regional Security,’ would be used to foster dialogue and cooperation towards advancing aviation capabilities across the continent.

He added that the anniversary celebration would culminate with a Ceremonial Parade and Aerial Display at the NAF Base, Kaduna on May 25.

The NAF spokesman said there would be a special session in honour of NAF’s fallen heroes and veterans, in addition to combat sports and the flying-out of some recently retired senior officers.
