According to him, the centrality of air power to the success of the ongoing fight against insurgency, armed banditry and other forms of criminality in the country is very key.

‘‘The earlier we all recognize that no Service can do it alone, the better for us as an armed forces and a Nation to surmount the current security challenges,” he said.
