Kwara to push for Air Force Comprehensive School, says governor

Plans have been unfolded by the Kwara State government to strongly push and advocate for the establishment of an Air Force Comprehensive Secondary School in the state so as to complement the existing basic schools.


Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, who disclosed this and said his administration, would make a strong case for the establishment of the school, noted that the state government was also seeking the extension of the current Air Force architecture in the state, including training infrastructure so that more of its aircraft and activities could take place.


The governor spoke when he received the new Commander of 303 Medium Airlift Group of the Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodore Garba Ibrahim Jibia, and his team at the Government House, Ilorin.


Efforts, the governor added, were also being made to strengthen the International Aviation College in Ilorin through renewal of the technical partnership between the state and the Air Force authority, saying the school requires training aircraft and other technical support from the military arm. AbdulRazaq, however, recalled that the Aviation College presently has about 60 students from five that the administration inherited, adding that different steps were being taken to  reposition the school.


The governor expressed gratitude to the Air Force for its significant contributions to national security, especially its roles in maintaining peace and order in Kwara State alongside other security agencies.


He also lauded the Federal Government for deploying the new Air Force Commander, who he described as highly experienced to the state. AbdulRazaq specifically commended President Muhammadu Buhari for up-scaling the country’s military capacity with modern armaments, including the newly procured Tucano fighter jets.

Responding, Air Commodore Jibia said the visit was to reassure the governor and the people of the state of the Command’s readiness to support the administration’s vision of maintaining peace that Kwara State is known for
