This is a great development for the Nigerian military and the whole West African Region as the A-29 Super Tucano jets will enable efficient and thorough air surveillance operation and reconnaissance in the region.

This development is also good news to the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) and bad news to bandits, terrorists, and criminals across the country.
