THE United States (U.S.) has confirmed that the Federal Government had paid for the war planes. It said the 12 Super Tucano fighter jets and other weapons it agreed to sell to the Nigerian to combat Boko Haram insurgents and other extremist groups would be delivered in 2020.

A News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) report at the weekend said a senior U.S. Department of State official made the disclosure during a background briefing with ‘selected reporters’ at the U.S. Consul-General’s Residence on Sunday in Ikoyi, Lagos, the.

The official, who confirmed that the Federal Government had paid for the war planes, said sale of the aircraft with weapons and services worth over $400 million included bombs and rockets.

The NAN report said that the propeller-driven plane with reconnaissance, surveillance and attack capabilities is made by Brazil’s Embraer.

Embraer’s second production line is in Florida in a partnership between Embraer and privately held Sierra Nevada Corp of Sparks, Nevada

The Super Tucano is said to cost more than $10 million each and the price could go much higher depending on the configuration. It is powered by a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT 6 engine

God bless Mr President...
For those bitter clowns that thought this is the era where funds are approved for election purposes or where Dansuki just orders CBN to release money for special duties, or for some useless reason because of election, that era is dead and buried with the last administration.

And those intellectually lazy youths who thought $10mil is the actual cost not considering that it depends on config, and that is the lowest possible amount, Garba Shehu was not wrong. You clowns forgot that, rockets and bombs including training and other military hardware/weapons are included in the contract.

Shame on the enemies of Nigeria...

This doesn't absolve the fact that financial laws of our country as regard such deduction were broken by the Buhari govt and this is tantamount to theft . No amount of bickering and spinning by evil zombies can change the facts that Buhari committed an impeachable offence

I.dont care about desperate measure for desperate times. Let the NASS take action against the government if they want to. For now I stand with the president. There was a deadline that had to be met, the NASS till date have not passed the budget into law despite being submitted to them since 2017. The only thing they are.good at is suspending percieved enemies which clowns like u hail, or going on recess. I dont care what u think.of me

Whether constitution was breached or not . Let Nass do their job and stop foaming in the mouth like epileptic patient.

The fact that the useless nass members Don't have opportunity to inflate and approve bogus prices. is like a dagger in their heart.

Sorry people that want the money to go dasuki way but disappointed .
can go and withdraw the money from USA treasury.

This is the only option you have on this issue, by law. Whatever else you chose to engage in(wailing, lamentation, jumping into the ocean committing suicide,) is solely your responsibility-OYO.

Only an intellectually lazy, semi illiterate with a warped thinking of ur ilk will support executive high handedness over the rule of law.

When a corrupt laden, financially rogue government like this APC government starts dipping it's thieving fingers to withdraw huge sums of money from the country's Excess Crude Account without notifying the legislature and commiting constitutional breaches in the name of an imaginary deadline, and yet the said military hardware won't be delivered into the country soon but in the next 2 years then you ask yourself why the rush in the first place.

Well i know APC media zombies are brainless and definitely don't have the capacity to think outside what they've been programmed to, and like their chief zombie said and i quote "I will happily jump into burning fire if President Buhari tells me to jump into it" ---Gov. Yahaya Bello 2018. There's nothing much to be expected from a destitute who screams sai baba allover the media space.

All governors apprpved that the money be released from ECA, that included PDP governors. Clowns like u who dont see beyond their nose will rather love to hear news about people being killed so u can have an excuse to attack the president. If the previous government had spent money on what it was meant for like this government is currently doing BH would have been a thing of the past, rather ATM Dansuki was using arms money for enrich and bless friends of the president, PDP and personal gains. Have u ever asked how a rag tag militant group that we know started with bows and arrows, petrol bombs and sticks grew into an organized army capable of launching high level offensive even against military barracks and formations under the previous government. Clowns like u will rather sit with your fone talking BS about things u know nothing about. Now excuse me!

Buhari is almost certain to lose. Even if he doesn't, it is going to be through a combined cocktail of northern zombies and massive rigging.

He is never going to be liked by the majority.

Now osibanjo who has been adjudged a coward by even his own people is the VP in such a calamitous government.

So where are you exactly are you hoping to get votes from for osibanjo?

Note that I am only humoring you. APC would be stupid to give osibanjo their ticket.

—And how will military equipment scheduled to be supplied to nigeria by the US in 2020 help the present security situation of the country? In saner climes, this corruption laden thieving government and your likes who support them would have been arrested and given long jail sentences for constitutional breaches and financial crimes.
zom-bies like you with inferior IQ capacity will always support this dullaard's highhandedness and disregard for the rule of law.
2019 is around the corner...be ready to be disgraced back to daura...you and your cluelessly inept, dumb, retarde'd president. Now pls get lost!

Stop this deliberate folly. Can u forsee the challenges we will have as a nation in 2020? Do u think they just pick planes from ware house and ship. Despite the confirmation by US the money was paid, u are still shouting theiving...u see why i deliberately ignore clowns like u who have proven over time that educating clowns like u is always an Elephant white project.
