President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to ensure appropriate funding for the Nigeria Armed Forces to enhance their capacity and professionalism.

Buhari made the promise at the maiden edition of the Nigerian Air Force International Air Power Seminar in Abuja.

The theme of the seminar is “Air Power in Irregular Warfare: A Framework for Understanding and Responding.’’

The president said government would accord priority to develop the capacity of the armed forces and other security agencies.

“We are committed to enhancing the welfare of all service personnel to enable them give their utmost in their service to the nation.

“We are also committed to ensuring that our armed forces are appropriately trained and equipped to deal with contemporary challenges of a globalised world, of which insurgency and terrorism have become of greatest concern.

“We will continue to support the drive to modernise the armed forces through budgetary enhanced allocation in their quest to meet the constitutional demands of protecting Nigeria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” Buhari said.

He said the seminar was timely as the military had been engaged in counter insurgency operations in the North East.

On the economy, Buhari said his administration was committed to diversifying the country’s economy.

He commended the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar for the initiative to hold the air power seminar.
