Nigerian Air Force has warned its officers against joining the on-going debate on the open letter of former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, issued the warning, while leading officers on the 2018 first quarter route march exercise.
Abubakar said there has been all sorts of campaign of calumny that is not good for the development and growth of Nigeria.
He asked Air Force officers not to join those he described as attempting to destabilize the country, and thereby distract their attention from their constitutional duties.
Instead, the Air Force chief of staff said their constitutional duty is to ensure peace, unity and stability in the country.
“Our personnel should not be distracted by what is happening in the country when all-sorts of campaigns that are not too useful in my opinion are going on.
“Our role is clearly defined; therefore, we must remain focused on that as provided for in the constitution of the country, which is to ensure the unity, stability and territorial integrity of the nation,” he said.
