FG Advertises Sale Of Two Presidential Jets

The Federal Government has advertised the sale of two aircraft in the presidential fleet and directed that the bids be quoted in US dollars.
A Falcon 7x and Hawker 4000 are the aircraft to be disposed, according to an advert placed in a national daily.








Interested buyers were asked to inspect the Falcon at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International, Airport, Abuja, and the Hawker at Cessna Zurich Citation Service Centre, Zurich, Switzerland.

The office of the national security adviser (NSA), which is in charge of the sale, said all bids should be quoted in US dollars – a possible indication that the government is avoiding exchange rate risks being experienced by businesses in Nigeria.
The number of the aircraft in the presidential fleet has been a subject of discussion, with critics lamenting the cost of maintaining them in a period of economic crisis.

Ben Bruce, senator representing Bayelsa east, who has been one of the vocal voices in the national assembly, advised President Muhammadu Buhari to sell off all the jets.
“I appeal to @MBuhari to sell off our 11 presidential jets. Maintaining them at the current ₦5.3 Billion per annum is against #commonsense. Does it make #commonsense that our presidential air fleet is larger than the combined fleet of the Queen of England and the British PM?” he once wrote on Twitter.


In September, Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, hinted that the aircraft in the fleet would soon be reduced.
“There is a govt committee already in place, working to reduce the number of aircraft in the Presidential fleet,” he also wrote on Twitter.

The recession we are in started long before 6yrs. We are 56 yrs so simple maths, will show that the problem started 50 yrs back.

  7. It's been a long time coming. How about reducing the no of cars in every govt officials convoy? How about reducing big govt? How about reducing unnecessary foreign trips when we have substantive ambassadors? The list goes on...we need pratical and realistic solutions to our problems. So thank you Mr President for this bold move #firsttocomment

    2. Anonymous 8.29, some of you re just so stupid like your comments. Which Peter Obi are you talking about? Same Peter Obi that used Anambra state money to build Mall and buy properties in Abuja? Is he not corrupt aswell?
      Listen always read news in daily newspapers not blog. The sell of presidential aircrafts has been one of Buhari's election campaigns manifesto. By the way you increased our aircrafts to 11 if not your Jonathan. Mumu comments everywhere.

    3. The two Anonymous before this. Clap for yourselves. If I was Yoruba I would have said, E ni Ilakaye.The Problem with you all is the need to compare wrongly. You voted this new administration because the previous administration failed completely. Yet you choose to compare an alternative to the same failed one? You booked a plane ticket for a journey and then keep comparing a plane's trip with a train? Abi iru kpalakpala wo ni Nigerian Politics turned formerly reasonable people into??? I hope you aren't Christians because the bible says anyone that lack wisdom should ask, so it can't be that. Jonathan failed! Buhari is failing much more! No one runs a government by trials and error. So this had always been in his mind, just like every other campaign promise? The man has 3 years to rule, he spent more than half before remembering even his own speech. How hard is it to come into office and within the first 6 month while waiting for the heavenly Ministers, sell aircraft? And the others such as one meal per day to kids in primary school, Jobs, Dollar = #1 etc. He keeps mentioning security and corruption, that was how we got this economy where people have started exchanging their own kids for a bag of rice! Don't worry. In one and half year, the whole government stops as the norm in Africa. Election years have never been used for any other thing than campaigns and fire approach. And Imagine, I didn't even Vote Jonathan because that man is delude, this one now come out as worse. Chai, Naija me I dey hail thee o.
