OCTOBER 1: This Is How Nigeria Will Mark Her 58th Anniversary
If you live in Abuja, do not panic at the sight and sounds of personnel and equipment manovers by the military and other paramilitary agencies.
It is not war but the celebration of Nigeria’s independence anniversary.
The office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) said that part of activities for the country`s 58th Independence Anniversary will include displays by the Nigerian Air Force jets and helicopters.
This was announced by Gabriel Aduda, Chairman, 2018 Independence Day Organising Committee, on Monday in Abuja.
He said the flight displays by fast Air-Force jets and helicopters would be within the airspace of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The major airspace to be affected would include those of Eagle Square, the three arms zones, Keffi, Ado, Orozo, Karu, Nyanya, Guzape and Asokoro.
The Air Force jet simulations involving a total of 27 air-craft assembled from various NAF units, were planned for between Sept. 14 to 30 and between 10.00 a.m to 4.00 p.m daily.
“Citizens are therefore advised to go about their normal activities,” he said.
He added that full details of the activities to mark the 2018 Independence Day would be released at a world press conference on Sept. 18 at the National Press Centre in Abuja.
