The Nigerian Air Force has re-introduced the immersion program of secondary school leavers, known as Ex-Junior Airmen into military service as airmen.
The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Isiaka Amao, announced this at the 36th passing out parade of junior airmen of the Air Force Military School in Jos, Plateau State.
Represented by Air Vice Marshall Isa Muhammad, Amao said some of the students who indicated an interest in serving their country keyed into the automatic absorption programme and were deployed to various NAF units across Nigeria after undergoing the consolidation training at Military Training Centre, Kaduna.
He said, “The level of training you acquired while at Air Force Military School will be worthless without commensurate application of this endeavour in the form of service to our fatherland as airmen.
The air chief also called the graduands to uphold the good tenets they learnt while in secondary school and those they would learn in the service, to enable them to maintain the high standards expected of them by the Force.
