As a result of this partnership, the auto maker will provide spare parts for NAF's fighter jets, CNN reports.

Innoson spokesperson, Cornel Osigwe, said this collaboration shows faith in local car makers.

"The army came to our factories in many states. They saw we had the capacity.

The attention is providing a big boost for the company. If the government patronize Innoson, individuals and companies will follow," he said.

NAF spokesperson, Ayodele Famuyiwa, also had something to say about the partnership.

"The ingenious effort by IVM is instrumental to the continued operation of the Alpha Jets. IVM helped to save the day when help was not forthcoming from abroad."

IVM, Nigeria's first car manufacturer, came onto the scene in 2014.

Since then, the company, part of the Innoson Group owned by billionaire Innocent Chukwuma, has gained a lot of momentum with patronage from politicians likeBen Bruce.

IVM currently has the capacity to produce 10,000 cars a year.

This is expected to change to 50,000 vehicles per year soon.
