Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar, at the weekend, made a strong case for qualitative education in the country.
He described education as the foundation of human capital development in any society.
In his remark during the launch of a book, ‘The Great Citadel’, written by a Wing Commander with the Nigerian Air Force, Anslem Osasuyi, the Air Force chief further underscored the importance of good education and said it is a key factor in any form of societal advancement and innovation.
Sadiq, who was represented at the book presentation by Air Vice Marshal AbdulGaniyu Olabisi, Officer Commanding (Logistics), expressed the hope that the book would contribute to revamping the fast eroding core values of hard work, perseverance and quest for excellence among the nation’s youths.
“It is also hoped that the success of this would encourage more literacy intellectual pursuit among Nigerians from different walks of life, particularly our wards, officers and airmen of the Nigerian Air Force,” Sadiq said.
According to Osasuyi, the author, said the book would help prepare youths in school psychologically and emotionally for learning.
“You need not take stimulants or use drugs to study; we need to prepare our youths to stay away from drugs,” Osasuyi said.
