Buhari puts up 2 presidential jets for sale

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the sale of two presidential jets to raise funds to tackle the nation’s numerous problems.

In a statement released by the presidency, Two presidential jets, a Falcon 7x executive jet and Hawker 4000 have been put up for sale.

The statement read;

The newspaper advertisements for the sale of two Presidential aircraft, a Falcon 7x executive jet and Hawker 4000 were duly authorized by the Presidency.

This is in line with the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari that aircraft in the Presidential air fleet be reduced to cut down on waste.
When he campaigned to be President, the then APC candidate Muhammadu Buhari, if you recall, promised to look at the presidential air fleet with view to cutting down on waste.

His directive to a government committee on this assignment is that he liked to see a compact and reliable aircraft for the safe airlift of the President, the Vice President and other government officials that go on special missions.
This exercise is by no means complete. The Commander of the Presidential air fleet will any time from now, call you to a ceremony at which he will hand over some other aircraft to the Airforce for their operations.
