Pauline Tallen arrives at NAF for a condolence visit and welcomes CAS
Pauline Tallen, Minister of Women’s Affairs, expressed condolences to the Nigeria Air Force (NAF) for the death of its personnel in the crashed NAF aircraft.
This was announced on Monday in Abuja by the director of public relations and information at the NAF headquarters, AVM Ibikunle Daramola.
A NAF Beechcraft King Air B350i crashed on February 21 in Abuja en route to Minna, killing all seven employees on board.
The minister expressed his condolences to the NAF when he paid a condolence visit to AVM Chief of Staff (CAS) Oladayo Amao at NAF headquarters in Abuja, along with Ambassador’s permanent secretary. Anthony Ekpa.
According to the statement, the ministry shares “this dark moment of pain.”
The statement noted that Tallen, who said he is at NAF headquarters on behalf of Nigerian women and children, prayed that the Lord would comfort President Muhammad Bukhari, CAS, and the entire NAF family.
The minister then sent a letter of condolence to the CAS.
Amao, in his speech, thanked the minister for taking the time to regret the NAF’s accident.
Amao said it was a sad Sunday for the entire NAF family, which lost a group of well-trained and dedicated personnel on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions.
He found that they worked in virtually every theater, including the Northeast, Northwest, and North Center.
The statement said the deceased was in Minna for several days on ISR missions in conjunction with a concerted effort to free the kidnapped students and staff of Kagara State Science College.
However, he described the incident as one of the dangers to the military profession, expressing concern that the NAF would be difficult to replace based on the training and experience gained over the years.
However, the statement said that the service was comforted by the fact that the deceased employees did their best to serve the nation.
