The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Isiaka Oladayo Amao, has expressed discontent over the current challenges of JET A-1 (aviation fuel) scarcity, saying if the situation persists it could adversely affect NAF air operations in the country.

Air Marshall Amao stated this while delivering a paper titled “Management of Emerging Air Threat: Implications for Strengthening Governance in Nigeria” as part of the activities marking Senior Executive Course (SEC) 44 Defence Week of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Study (NIPSS) Kuru, Plateau State, current sales for JET A-1 stand at N950 per liter, as opposed to the N360 per liter appropriated in the NAF 2022 budget.

According to him, the current cost, and the implication was far beyond the NAF budgetary provision in which NAF requires the Federal Government to quickly intervene to ensure safe air operations in the country.

He stated that the way out of the predicament as an interim measure is for the federal government to grant NAF operational licenses and provide the necessary infrastructure to independently import and bridge the aviation fuel scarcity by the first quarter of 2023.

Air Marshall Amao further advised that to cushion the scarcity, a coastal reception depot could be built for the NAF as an immediate measure, where special trucks would move the fuel from the reception depot to operation units.
