Pakistan delivers JF-17 fighters to Nigerian Air Force

Nigeria’s Air Force officially took delivery of three JF-17 fighter aircraft Friday during a ceremony at a base in Makudri amid celebrations marking the 57th anniversary of the service.

The fighters were handed over by Pakistan Aeronautical Complex, which constructed the aircraft and was responsible for their delivery. This marks the latest development in the Pakistan Air Force’s involvement in the Nigerian Air Force’s modernization program.

A Pakistan Air Force news release stated the ceremony was attended by high-ranking officers from both forces.

The chief guest, Nigerian Defence Minister Bashir Magashi, thanked Pakistan and its Air Force for their role in modernizing the local service and helping Nigeria meet its security challenges.

“We are happy and excited on the addition of JF-17 fighter aircraft from Pakistan,” he said.
