Yenagoa – Mr Mathias Tsekaa, Spokesman of Mobility Command, Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Base in Bayelsa, says regular walk and exercise can enhance mental fitness of a person.
Tsekaa said this while fielding questions from News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Yenagoa on the command’s readiness to hold its annual 10km walk and jog on Saturday.
He said that importance of walk and jog to one’s physical fitness could not be over emphasised.
He said that command’s annual exercise scheduled for Saturday was a welcome development and advised officers to partake in the exercise.
spokesman, however, said that the purpose of the exercise was to further demonstrate personnel readiness for combat at any point in the defence of their fatherland.
According to him, exercise which will take place at the NAF Base along Elebele/AIT Road, Yenagoa, is to maintain NAF personnel’s high level of mental and physical fitness.
exercise is in two categories; that is jogging and working. Some officers and men will participate in walk, while some are for jogging.
officers and men, who are above 40 years of age, are going to participate in walk, while those that are below 40 will jog.
“At end of the exercise, we will give awards to the best participants, ranging from first to third position; since there are two activities, the award will also be categorised.
walk and jog is an annual event, it has been part of our activities and it has been helping us physically,” said Tsekaa. (NAN)
