Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni has revealed that the newly constructed Damaturu International airport would kick start its first-ever test landing operation on Friday.

Naija News learnt that Buni who disclosed this in Damaturu promised to complete the Nigerian Air Force housing quarters any time soonest in order to provide efficient service to the airport facility.

The governor also commended President Buhari, the Nigerian military, and people of the state for their cooperation in fighting the insurgency in the Northeast region.

“The Damaturu International Airport will be test landed on May 29, and we are going to provide Nigeria Air Force (NAF) quarters there as we have already promised “We are soon commencing on the quarters project and all other facilities will also be provided,” “This is quite reassuring and a clear sign that the madness called insurgency is coming to an end very soon,” Buni said.

While inspecting the newly established helipad, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal Sadiq Abubakar commended the governor for creating an enabling environment for NAF to carry out its operation smoothly. The CAS also expressed confidence that with the facilities in place, insecurity in the state would be addressed.

“I am very excited that Buni has been supportive to the air force and provided an additional land area where we are putting certain facilities that will add lots of value to what we are doing,” “I am very confident with what we have, it is going to be much easier for the air force to respond to any threats within Yobe, rather than going to Maiduguri and coming back.
