Buhari Commissions Air Force Drone Jonathan ‘Earlier Launched’ - PDP by nwakibie3(m): 3:06pm On Feb 16, 2018
President Muhammadu Buhari’s launch of surveillance Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, UAV, produced locally by the Nigerian Air Force Institute of Technology is already generating controversy over the claim that it is the first indigenous UAV, whereas former president, Goodluck Jonathan was said to have launched the same invention in December, 2013.

Buhari, had while inducting the unmanned aerial vehicle christened TSAIGUMI, in Kaduna, on Thursday, said, “It is a pleasure to be here with you all for the induction of the Nigerian Air Force Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, ‘TSAIGUMI’, Nigeria’s first indigenously developed Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. The significance of this accomplishment as a milestone of national technological development cannot be over-estimated”.

Since the news broke, there have been speculations that TSAIGUMI is the same UAV which the then president Jonathan commissioned in 2013.

DAILY POST had on December 18, 2013 reported that Jonathan in Kaduna unveiled the first Nigerian made unmanned aerial vehicle, UAV, named GULMA which was built by the Nigerian Air Force in Kaduna.

In his speech at the unveiling ceremony, Jonathan said at the time that as Nigeria continues to witness breakthrough in technology at various sectors, it was imperative to appreciate the fact that Nigeria has potential to do great things, charging Nigerians to continue to explore all available areas that could take the country to greatness.

The PDP in its reaction described the commissioning as a shameful act as its National Publicity Secretary of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan wrote on Twitter, “It’s a shame that same project former President GEJ commissioned in Dec 17th 2013 is the same project (first unmanned drone ) that Buhari is recommissioning and the @APCNigeria apologists are celebrating this Shameful act.”

Clarifying the issue under contention regarding the drone, the spokesman of the Nigerian Air Force, NAF, AVM Olatokunbo Adesanya told DAILY POST on Friday that the UAV commissioned yesterday by Buhari is the first indigenous operational drone.

According to him, “The other one was not operational. It was a prototype. It was not prepared to conduct any operation. This one built on the earlier one and it is a much more improved version. This is a much more improved version of the other one. This one has mixed characteristics… with so many other things.”

Smh..."so many other things." These are the people in charge of our military. Nigeria is in trouble.

These are the same people who just paid about $500 million for fighter planes from the US, except they are toys and not fighter jets. Those jets don't have a single rocket or ammunition of any sort. What's worse? They cannot be repaired or maintained in any way by Nigerians and must be shipped off to the US for maintenance.

And the clueless man flew off to commission. I wonder if this man even knows what is going on around him. He looks like a walking corpse.

By tomorrow or next, they would say the one GEJ commissioned is not Nigerian made but US made brought into the country as the first of its kind so there is a difference, then use PMB's own for campaign in 2019 as part of his achievement.

Get your pvc people, the dullard is all shades of wrong.

For those supporting Buhari, may devil run your life the way Buhari is running this country.

If he doesn't commission that, what will he commission?

Governors with viable projects refused to invite him, the ones with rail coaches and University project called drone, invited him and you complaining.

Chaiii, may the thunder of God Almighty strike this air force spokes man to death, telling such shameful lies just to cover the illiterate dullard ass. I weep for the worthless and maggot infested brainless people still supporting this useless and worthless 99.9% propaganda filled government.
