The Presidency on Tuesday, April 13, announced that the country would soon take delivery of some fighter jets in a bid to bolster the country’s military operations.

According to the Presidency, this is to aid in the fight against terrorism as well as banditry.

This was disclosed via the Twitter page of Garba Shehu, the spokesman of the Presidency.

Shehu said, “Six of the twelve Super Tucanos are on track to arrive in mid-July 2021. With the remaining six shortly after that.

“There are 14 Nigerian pilots currently training at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia.”
