This is not to say that women have not been in our military forces before now. Recall that in January 2019, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) also deployed airwomen and female air officers, known as Women of War, for military operations in the North-east.

These female pilots have distinguished themselves in a field often seen as the exclusive preserve of their male counterparts.

They have proven beyond reasonable doubt to be a new breed of high flyers whose passion push them to soar the skies in service to nation and mankind. The feat has again reinforced the fact that their dreams remain valid as they are nurtured and also harnessed for greater heights.

They are deadly. They are fearless. They are Nigerian.

Kudos to the Chief of Army Staff as he has indeed turned the NAF into a highly trained modern, technically enhanced fighting force. All we need now are more advanced fighter jets. Let the momentum continue!!!

God bless the Nigerian armed forces.
