Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has charged the new Air Force Commander of the Nigeria Air Force Mobility Command in Yenagoa, to consolidate on the gains recorded in the security of the state.

While urging the Air Chief to add value to his jurisdiction, Diri said his administration would continue to synergise with security agencies to ensure zero-tolerance for crime.

The governor approved land for the building of new residential quarters for the Command at the New Yenagoa City. Diri spoke, yesterday, when he received the new Air Officer Commanding Mobility Command of the Nigerian Air Force, Air Vice Marshal Iboro Etuk-Udoh, in Government House, Yenagoa.

He said: “Here in Bayelsa, we have a very cordial working relationship with the military and the Air Force is no exception. We partner, collaborate and synergise.

“We believe your coming will further cement the relationship that already exists between the Air Force and the good people and government of Bayelsa State as well as the military in general.”

“Let me thank you for raising several issues about the newly functional state international airport. You have requested for very special forces to be integrated into the security of the airport. I hereby direct the authorities at the airport to commence that process with your relevant personnel to ensure that our airport is safe.”

While commending the Air Force for proposing to build befitting quarters for its officers, he directed the Commissioner for Lands and Housing to make available land as requested by the new commander.
