Nigeria is set to begin jet manufacture before the end of 2023, according to Minister of Aviation Hadi Siriki.

Hadi Siriki made the remarks during a recent official visit to Hungary’s Magnus Aircraft Industry in Pogany.

According to the minister, should Nigeria forms a partnership with a Hungarian aircraft manufacturer, the country will be able to begin put parts of planes together before moving on to manufacturing.

“If we venture with them, we may start with assembling plant and later manufacturing,” Hadi Siriki said, in a statement released by his spokesman James Odaudu.

According to him, the Magnus plane runs on regular vehicle gasoline and outperforms any training aircraft of its kind. He was particularly pleased with the preparations made in Nigeria to begin manufacturing.
