CAS Advocates Collective Effort In Fight Against Insurgency

The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Oladayo Amao has said no single Service or security agency can achieve the success desired in combating insurgency and other security challenges confronting the country.

Amao stated this at the inauguration of the maiden Air Rank Leadership Seminar (ARLS) held at the prestigious Air Force War College, Makurdi, Benue State.

In a statement by the Director Public Relations and Information Air Cdre Edward Gabkwet, the CAS who was represented by the Air Officer Commanding Tactical Air Command, Air Vice Marshal Gamso Lubo said that effectiveness in all military operations is dependent on synergy and how well the various services communicate and coordinate their efforts on the battlefield, hence the need to work collectively to achieve expected results.

He stated that for the NAF to meet its constitutional role of ensuring the territorial integrity of Nigeria, it requires competent Commanders at all levels to provide the requisite leadership that is invaluable in achieving organisational goals.

He said the ARLS was thus designed to elucidate exchange of ideas among participants with a view to broadening their intellectual capacity on the implementation of effective leadership at the military strategic level.

‘This seminar could not have come at a better time as it avails you all the opportunity to critically employ other methods and strategies towards combating security threats.’

In his remarks, the Commandant of the College, Air Vice Marshal Ibrahim Tepkwan Ali stated that in line with its broad objective of developing qualitative manpower for the NAF, the College was tasked to develop an executive leadership training module for officers of air rank as part of measures to enhance professionalism and succession planning within the top leadership cadre of the NAF.

He added that the course curriculum consists of various segments such as executive leadership, emotional intelligence, strategic information management and power of command among others.

According to the Commandant, “the topics are further enriched with scenario analysis, syndicate discussion and presentations. The 5-day seminar which ends on 26 March 2021 has a rich pool of resource persons including the former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Oluseyi Petinrin (Rtd), former Director of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade (Rtd) and Professor Gabriel Moti of the Department of Public Administration, University of Abuja, among others”.
