Nigerian Air Force Announces Partial Traffic Restriction for Annual Fitness Exercise along the Nyanya-Keffi expressway on Saturday to accommodate its 2023 Annual 10 Kilometers Walk/Jog Exercise, taking place at NAF Bases nationwide.

Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, the Director of Public Relations and Information for the NAF, released a statement on Friday in Abuja, providing details of the exercise and its impact on traffic.

The exercise is part of the NAF’s ongoing efforts to enhance the physical fitness of its personnel. It is scheduled to commence at 6:00 am.

In Abuja, the exercise will begin at the NAF Base, Asokoro Football Field, and proceed to the Defence Headquarters Roundabout. From there, participants will continue along Keffi Road/Kugbo Furniture and Pedestrian Bridge, pass the Army Checkpoint in Kugbo, and return to base via the NAF Valley Second Gate.

During the exercise, there will be partial traffic restrictions along the specified routes. In addition to Abuja, similar exercises will be conducted in other locations across the nation, covering major routes around NAF Bases and their surrounding areas.

Gabkwet assured the public that all necessary safety measures have been implemented to ensure a smooth and incident-free exercise. He urged residents, especially motorists and those living around AYA, Asokoro, and communities near NAF Bases nationwide, to go about their normal activities without any cause for concern.

The Nigerian Air Force’s commitment to physical fitness and readiness is evident in this annual exercise, which aims to maintain the high level of preparedness and agility of its personnel. The cooperation and understanding of the public are appreciated as these activities are carried out in the interest of national security and the overall well-being of the NAF personnel.
