Ahead of Nigeria’s 62nd Independence Anniversary on October 1st, the Nigerian Airforce has asked Nigerians not to panic as there would be various NAF aircraft on rehearsal flights in and around Abuja.
The Airforce authority, in a statement by Edward Gabkwet, Director of Public Relations & Information, Nigerian Airforce asked members of the public not to be disturbed upon hearing the sound or movement of aircraft around the city.
“The 2022 Nigeria Independence Day Celebration is scheduled to hold on 1 October 2022 at Eagle Square, Abuja and part of the activities lined up for the celebration include aerial displays by Nigerian Air Force (NAF) aircraft. Accordingly, the likelihood of various NAF aircraft on rehearsal flights in and around Abuja skies from now till 1 October 2022 is inevitable.
”Nigerians should therefore not panic on sighting the aircraft but go about their lawful businesses with a sense of pride and confidence that their Air Force will always have their back.” He said.
