Nigerian Air Force Opens New Base In Plateau State

In an effort to aid its operational activities, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has unveiled a new base in Kerang, Plateau state to assist wounded and distressed troops serving in combat units in the region to end the reoccurring killings and conflicts.

According to a statement signed by the Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya, the Chief of Air Staff disclosed that the 205 CSARG in Kerang was established to provide aid and operational assistance to wounded and distressed troops.

He then used the occasioned to appreciate the laudable generosity of the Governor and the Kerang Community for the provision of 100 hectares of land for the establishment of the new Base.

Commissioning the projects, Governor of Plateau State, Barrister Simon Lalong,
commended the CAS for ensuring the provision of the new facilities barely a year after the Ground Breaking Ceremony.

The newly commissioned projects include the Group Headquarters Complex, a 10 x one-bedroom accommodation for Non-Commissioned Officers and a 6 x one-bedroom Single Officers’ Quarters.

Other commissioned projects include the Commander’s Official Residence and a 4 x 2-bedroom residential accommodation for Senior Non-Commissioned Officers serving in the Unit.

The 205 CSARG, which had been operating from Jos since its establishment one and half years ago, will now commence operation from the new Base in Kerang.
