"In this vein, a key driver of my vision which is to promote and inculcate the core values of integrity, excellence and service delivery, readily comes to mind. Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to say that we have found in ACM Bashir the rare qualities we stand for in the Nigerian Air Force.

"The special promotion of ACM Bashir to the rank of corporal today, apart from serving as a reward for good conduct is also to serve as motivation to other airmen/airwomen to aspire for such elevation. I am therefore delighted to see a cross-section of the gathering of members and friends of the Air Force family for an event that triggers happiness and self actualization."
