The Nigerian Airforce has said that the Silverbird Heroes Awards given to the organization will spur it to do more to service the nation.

The representative of the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar said this while receiving the award recently at the Silverbird Man of the Year Award ceremony at Eko Hotel, Lagos.

He said, “The armed forces of Nigeria are one group of people that are prone to being bashed by virtue of the complexity of the job they do.
Because of our foray into political terrain, we have become the weeping boy. A few times like this when we are honoured it is always a great privilege.. This will spur us to do much more.
