Boko Haram: Osinbajo Unveils 5 Super Mushshak Aircraft Bought From Pakistan


Puzzled at thinking of Nigerian leaders, all the military apparatus in the country are yet to defeat Boko-haram but there is constant deployment of soldiers in Eastern Nigeria and road blocks almost 10 kilometers. I hope with the Aircrafts the whole Sambisa forest will be bombed and Boko-haram will be a thing of the past?

Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday in Kaduna unveiled five Super Mushshak trainer aircraft acquired by the Federal Government to boost the capacity of the Nigeria Air Force personnel in the country.

Osinbajo, who was represented by the Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan-Ali, said Nigeria would welcome more support from friendly nations in its efforts to mow down Boko Haram insurgency.

“I will not fail to mention that the decision to acquire the Super Mushshak aircraft from Pakistan has greatly promoted the existing bilateral relationship between the two sister countries.

“It is our hope that we will continue to have the support and collaboration of other friendly nations, especially as we continue to combat insurgency and other security challenges in our country.’’

He recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had two years ago pledged to build the capacity of the armed forces to effectively address Boko Haram insurgency and other national security threats.

“These achievements are a demonstration of the commitment and visionary leadership of the administration,’’ he said.

Osinbajo stressed that the administration had remained committed to its desire of ensuring a peaceful country.

“We have since embarked on qualitative training and acquisition of new platforms and other supporting equipment for the Armed Forces and security agencies.

“We have also sanitised the procurement process of military hardware with a view to eliminating corruption and inefficiency.

“I make bold to say that we have achieved remarkable savings and infused quality into the system.

“This has contributed in no small way to the acquisition of these new aircraft without any encumbrances.

“It is now your responsibility to make good use of the aircraft as we await the delivery of the last batch by the end of the year.

“I have no doubt that the acquisition of the Super Mushshak aircraft would add impetus to the training efforts of 401 FTS”.
