As President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday decorated the new Service Chiefs with new ranks, a foundation known as MYVIE Foundation International has congratulated Air Marshal Isiaka Oladayo Amao and his wife, Mrs Olubunmi Elizabeth Amao over the new elevation.
The Foundation in a press statement by its Sub-Saharan Coordinator, Oliver Chinwendu described the elevation of Amao as an honour well deserved, describing him as a man of great experience and integrity.
“Just a month to your appointment, you have started showcasing your great potentials . Being a fighter pilot, especially one who has repeatedly tasted battle through the deployment of air fire power, there is no doubt that your elevation as Air Marshal will not only meet our urgent needs as a nation but will assist in combating insurgency in the country. Your experience and expertise will go a long way in changing and making the Nigerian Airforce a force to be reckoned with internationally.”
The Foundation further extolled the good virtues of Air Marshal Amao, saying that the Foundation has had a good working relationship with him while he was the AOC Tactical Air Commander.
According to the Foundation, he granted Myvie Foundation International opportunity of training Nigerian Airforce Secondary school pupils on skill acquisition and at the end of the programme , he even gave an award to Chief (Mrs) Julienne Oyebanji JP, of Myvie Foundation International who was accompanied by other executive members.
” He is a man who always wants the best for his fellow airmen. It was during his tenure that Myvie Foundation International was also allowed to further train Airforce personnel on repair of Air craft batteries and those of other heavy duty equipment.
lt was during his time, that youth and women in the Airforce Base were able to acquire skills on how to make shoes, bags and other skill acquisitions which most of them are still benefiting from till today”.
The Foundation while praying for his successful tenure as the new Chief of Air Staff, the Sub-Saharan Coordinator, Oliver Chinwendu , said that he believes that his tenure will bring great turn around to Nigerian Airforce.
