War College Tour Deepens Military Dynamics – NAF

The Nigeria Air Force (NAF) has said that the international study tour to Turkiye and Morocco by participants of the Air Force War College (AFWC) would deepen understanding of global geopolitics and military-industrial dynamics.

This is contained in a statement by the Director, Public Relations and Information of the Service, AVM Edward Gabkwet, on Tuesday in Abuja.

Gabkwet said the tour was aimed at equipping the participants with a deeper understanding of the complexities of international politics, security, and interdependence of modern nation-states.

He said the tour themed: “Military Industrial Complex and National Development: Lessons for Nigeria”, focused on understanding the technological advancements and manufacturing capabilities of the armed forces in the countries.

Gabkwet said the participants explored how the two nations had leveraged their military-industrial complexes to bolster their national development agenda.

The statement quoted the Commandant of the College, AVM Gabriel Kehinde, as saying that the study tour provided the participants with a comprehensive understanding of the linkages between military capabilities, technological innovation, and economic progress.

Kehinde said that by examining the models adopted by Türkiye and Morocco, the college drew valuable lessons that would inform Nigeria’s path towards strengthening its defense industry and fostering sustainable national development.

He said the participants, upon their return to Nigeria, presented their findings in both oral and written forms.

According to him, the findings highlighted the unique strength, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) observed in each country.

“The insights and lessons learnt will be utilised to guide the Nigerian Air Force’s (NAF) strategic planning and decision-making processes, as the Service seeks to optimise its own military-industrial capabilities.

“The successful completion of the study tour underscores NAF’s commitment to fostering highly informed and strategically minded officers, capable of addressing the evolving challenges and opportunities in a rapidly changing global security environment,” he said.
