The Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Hasan Abubakar, has approved the implementation of a Group Personal Accident Insurance Policy, GPAIP, for all Nigerian Air Force, NAF, personnel.

This was contained in a statement by the Director, Public Relations and Information, NAF, Edward Gabkwet, on Wednesday in Abuja.

According to him, the policy tallies with one of the key enablers of the Command Philosophy of the CAS, which dwelt on, ‘Maintaining a highly motivated force by enhancing welfare and infrastructural renewal.’

He said while several insurance policies administered by the Ministry of Defence and the NAF Investment Ltd. cover all NAF personnel, they, however, do not adequately address some hazardous challenges encountered in the course of the careers of personnel.

He noted the need to review and implement a specialised insurance scheme designed to address those hazards and unique challenges thus became imperative.

Abubakar said the personnel would be incentivised to give their best with the assurance of adequate care in the event of disability or death during military operations or any form of accident.

He added that the welfare of NAF personnel had remained germane to the attainment of his command philosophy as it helps in boosting morale and contributing to the sustenance of professionalism.
