‘It’s a game changer’ — FG confirms arrival of final batch of Super Tucano jets

The federal government has taken delivery of all the 12 A-29 Super Tucano fighter jets expected from the United States.

Lai Mohammed, the minister of information and culture, made this known on Monday during a TV Continental programme.


The minister described the fighter jets as a “game-changer” and disclosed that they have been used for operations in the northeast.

He said the jets contributed to the recent successes recorded by the military.

“All the 12 Super Tucano fighter jets have been received. As of this morning, all the 12 were here and they have been deployed to the northeast,” he said.

“We can see that the Tucano jets are actually a game-changer.

“Most of the successes we have recorded in recent time is because of the acquisition of the new platforms, not limited to the super Tucano.”

The minister also commented on the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report which alleged that the Nigerian air force paid bandits N20 million in exchange for an anti-aircraft gun.

According to the report, the anti-aircraft gun was stolen by the bandits after a clash with a military unit in Rugu Forest, Katsina state.

The gun was said to have posed a threat to President Muhammadu Buhari who was flying “to his hometown about 80 miles away”.

The air force had described the allegation as “utterly illogical,” saying it could be part of a campaign to worsen insecurity in Nigeria.

Giving his take on the matter, the minister said: “Fortunately, the Air Force immediately debunked this because this exposes their ignorance.

“Between Zamfara, Katsina, parts of Kaduna, and Niger states, there are about 150 bandit camps. Who then was the money given to?

“It does not make any sense and it is because they do not understand how bandits operate that is why they can peddle that kind of fake news.”

The minister added that the military’s onslaught against terrorists is encouraging people to return to the farms, particularly in the northeast.
