A statement by his acting Chief Press Secretary, Mr Daniel Alabrah, quoted Diri as saying, “You talked about a regimental training base at Toru-Orua that is yet to take off. Once I get the details, I assure you that we will expedite action for that base to take off.
“Please, communicate and liaise with the government for anything that will lead to establishing your base fully.”
Air Vice-Marshal Ojeyemi congratulated the governor on behalf of the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar, on his assumption of office.
