The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has disclosed plans to partner with the Spanish Government in the areas of platform acquisition, training, air operations, intelligence sharing and capacity development in imagery analysis. The Chief of Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Oladayo Amao have the indication when he hosted the Spanish Ambassador to Nigeria, Juan Ignacio Sell at the NAF Headquarters, Abuja. In a signed statement by the Director of Public Relations & Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, the CAS noted that developing bilateral and multilateral partnership when the Nation is faced with myriad of security challenges has become expedient due the global nature of terrorism and its attendant negative impact on the citizenry.This, the CAS said has led to population dislocations especially in Northeast and Northwest Nigeria which has been exacerbated by forced migration and socio-economic upheavals. Air Marshal Amao stated that a partnership with a developed Nation like Spain would enable the NAF take advantage of the numerous technological competencies available to address some of the technical challenges the Service currently faces especially in intelligence gathering. He further added that the NAF and Airbus of Spain were currently in talks to explore opportunities that could be available for the NAF to tab into, all with the hope of enhancing NAF’s aircraft holding. “If our interface with Airbus of Spain is anything to go by, I am hopeful that the outcome would go a long way in adding value to our current efforts in all our theatres of operation”, he said. Earlier, the Spanish Ambassador to Nigeria, Juan Ignacio Sell, noted that his visit to the NAF, which is the first to any of the Services since assuming office in December 2021, is indicative of the high regard and respect he has for the NAF in view of the critical role it plays in keeping all Nigerians and residents of Nigeria safe. He further disclosed that his country is willing to provide bespoke solutions that would support the various operations of the NAF while expressing his Country’s preparedness to further deepen partnership with the NAF by posting a Defence Attaché to the Spanish Embassy in Abuja to enhance bilateral interface in terms of defence and security collaborations. This step, according to Juan Sell would aid in further improving on the existing cordial relationship between Nigeria and Spain built over the years.
