Represented by AVM Isa Muhammad, the air chief enjoined the students to uphold the good tenets they learnt while in secondary school, as well as those they would learn in the service, to enable them maintain the high standards expected of them by NAF.
“The POP signifies your formal completion of secondary education after six years of academic and military training at the Air Force Military School. The school has graduated over 4,300 students so far since inception,” he stated.
