Jonathan happy as Enugu Helicopter School produces 42 pilots

President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday commended the
International Helicopter Flying School, Enugu for
producing 42 pilots, which was the first batch to graduate
from the school.
The president, who was represented at the ceremony by
his deputy, Namadi Sambo, said by the graduation, the
Nigerian Airforce, has achieved an important milestone in
its history.
He said that the new pilots coming on stream would not
only help to boost the capacity and capability of the
Airforce, but would also enhance the performance of the
Nigerian Armed Forces.
Jonathan said that the success of the project was a clear
demonstration that the Airforce was heading in the right
direction in its quest to reposition itself among its
contemporaries in other countries.
He lauded the quality of training at the school, adding
that it measured up to international standards.
Jonathan, therefore, urged the new pilots to demonstrate
excellence and professionalism in their duties in order to
help take the Airforce and the nation to greater heights.
In their separate speeches, the Chief of Air Staff, Air
Marshal Adesola Amosu and the Rector of the School,
Group Captain I.A Yahaya commended the Federal
Government for providing the necessary resources for the
effective development of the school, promising to ensure
that it meets all the expectations set by the government.
Speaking at the ceremony, billionaire businessman,
Prince Arthur Eze, noted that Enugu State has become the
best place to invest in the country, which credit, he said,
should be given to Governor Sullivan Chime.
Eze, who said that Chime has "completely transformed
the state," commended the Federal Government for its
commitment to the project.
Dignitaries, who witnessed the event, included Governor
Chime, his deputy, Rev Raphael Nwoye, former Governor
of old Anambra State and Senator Jim Nwobodo,
among others.
