“There is no contract of arms between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the United States of America today apart from the 12 Super Tucano Attack Helicopters of which six had been delivered. We are quite satisfied with the progress and cooperation that we received from the government of the US on this issue.”
“As a matter of fact, six of the Tucano helicopter will be launched on Aug. 3, this year.”
“We are not aware of the so-called 875 million USD arms contract or some helicopters which they said some lawmakers in the US are trying to persuade the president of the US not to honour. The relationship between Nigeria and the US is smooth and waxing stronger,” he said
