Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele has revealed that the country is expecting 12 fighter jets.
He stated that these fighter jets expected to be delivered in July will help solve the insecurity in the country.
Emefiele made this known on Tuesday at a monetary policy committee meeting in Abuja.
He expressed concern over the negative effects of insecurity on the economy.
“If you want an economy to grow, the level of insecurity must be low because if there is a high level of insecurity like what we see today, the economy will suffer,” he said.
“Efforts are now targeted at south-eastern and north-eastern parts of the country.
“About three years ago, the federal government and the United States signed a pact that resulted in a government-to-government acquisition of military equipment, out of which, we are expecting 12 fighter planes that would help us solve our insecurity. I am aware that six of them are coming to the country in the month of July and August.”
