Fg rejects us conditions on sale of 12 super tucano planes – politics – nigeria e payment electricity bill up


“But this is what we normally do in all the defence contracts, we send our personnel to go and understudy, especially when it comes to specialized aircrafts like in Russia, our personnel are permanently based in where the production is being done for this MI35 helicopters,” Dan-Ali told reporters at the State House, Abuja.

The Minister of Information Lai Mohammed earlier said in a statement that the 12 aircraft, with weapons and services, would cost $593 million. But the defence minister yesterday gave the cost at $494m, about $100m less the cost announced by the government spokesperson.

The propeller-driven plane with reconnaissance, surveillance and attack capabilities, is made by Brazil’s Embraer. A second production line is in Florida, in a partnership between Embraer and privately held Sierra Nevada Corp of Sparks, Nevada.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a retired senior air force officer conversant with the deal said the high cost was arrived “most likely through intermediaries in which case 95 percent of the deal is backed by corrupt practices which makes it so expensive.”

The security chief fingered some senior government officials in the deal. He said a senior security official had “wanted to stop the deal but due to the non-assertiveness of that security official, another official went ahead with the deal.”

But in the case of Nigeria’s purchase, “the high cost must have been borne out by the actions of intermediaries. The money might be paid through offshore accounts in some islands. But the EU and US companies are very careful in accepting anything above their ideal profit margin,” the defence contractor said.

You are jumping from one country to another when you have Igbos who can build these things for you. This is not about Igbos being more educated or gifted, no, you have to understand the meaning of "Ndigbo or Ndi Gbo" which means "Ancient people". Many Igbos don’t know know the meaning of their name to tell you how lost they are. Meaning, Igbo have built these things before in the former lives or civilizations, and this knowledge are just being reincarnated back into the new generations via DNA. Go and read books by Dr. Catherine Acholonu "They Lived Before Adam" and "Igbo Traditions Reveal Ancient Genetic Engineering."

These are powerful books, very deep and that will make you look carefully at Igbo people and why they are intentionally being repressed by the global powers…these people have documents on who the Igbos are. Igbos are alien to Africa, they migrated from the jewish land to Nigeria. This is why Igbos naturally are good at traveling and migrating to places and adapting faster than other groups simply because these things are in their DNA…THEIR FOREFATHERS DID IT, THESE THINGS STAY WITH YOU FOR EVER! Finally Randall Robinson said "when you die, you don’t go anywhere, you stay in the family." meaning, you reincarnate back into a baby born in the family. Which means, whatever you did while alive will be passed on to that new child. Same thing is happening to the Igbos.
