Air Force Upgrades Research And Development For Fleet

The Chief of Air Force, Standards and Evaluation, Air Vice Marshal Sadiq Abubakar, has declared that the Nigerian Air Force has achieved a reduction of cost in the management of its fleet.

Brandishing some of the innovations by the Air Force, he told journalists that the Air Force could now also ensure that its ‘fleet is constantly deployed in support of other security agencies in maintaining security in the country’.

Some of the innovations include the hydraulic accumulators for two of its helicopters which hitherto cost 6,000 Dollars to procure each piece.

However, in collaboration with tertiary institutions and research institutions in the country, the same product is now produced at the cost of 10,000 Naira (about $62.5).

Other innovations include mobile GPU systems for powering aircrafts and helicopters while on assignment.

The Air Force said it would continue to improve on its research and development such that the technologies and innovations could be exported to other African countries and reduce reliance on more developed nations.

Suswam declares war on operators of WAEC/NECO miracle centres in Benue State

 

BENUE State governor, Mr. Gabriel Suswam, on Thursday declared that operators of miracle centres in NECO and WAEC examinations will no longer find a safe haven in Benue State.

Should they insist on running such illegal examinations centres, then they should be prepared to face the wrath of the law.

Governor Suswam spoke at the start of a two-day First Benue Education Summit at the JS Tarka Foundation in Makurdi. “We are going to be decisive, irrespective of who is involved; we cannot continue like this,” Governor Suswam told the audience, made up of proprietors, parents, government officials, regulatory agencies, traditional rulers, faith-based organisations, non-governmental organisations, the press and other stakeholders in the educational sector. The governor bemoaned a situation where students, parents and teachers form an unholy alliance to perpetrate exam fraud at some WAEC/ NECO centres, usually referred to as “Miracle Centres” where candidates who write exams at such centres are assisted to cheat just to acquire high grades.

Describing such students as halfbaked, Governor Suswam said they were among those who usually got into secret cults on university campuses with the habit of threatening lecturers to award scores to them. He said his administration would not condone such illegality warning that severe penalties would be visited on anybody caught in exam malpractice.
