Mixed Reactions Trail Proposed Sale Of Presidential Jets. by happiness2020(f): 10:19pm On Oct 04, 2016
Mixed reactions have trailed the proposed sale of two of the jets used by President Muhammadu Buhari.
On Tuesday, October 4, the federal government advertised the sale of two aircraft in the presidential fleet.
Garba Shehu, the president’s senior special assistant on media and publicity,
confirmed this in a series of tweets from his Twitter handle @GarShehu.
He said 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.
The fleet is believed to hold as much as 10 airplanes, and the president has been criticised for maintaining the large fleet in the past.
Mixed reactions have trailed the proposed sale of Nigeria’s presidential jets
The Office of the National Security Adviser advertised the sale of two airplanes in a national daily, adding that the aircraft that are currently up for sale are Falcon 7x and Hawker 4000 and are to be quoted in dollars.

The president’s senior special assistant also said some of the aircrafts will be handed over to the Nigerian Air force to boost their operations.
While some Nigerians have commended the move, others argue that this should have been done earlier. Some however expressed doubt about how the money from the sale of the jet will be managed.
Read the reactions below:
Athan Beloved wrote: Not only selling of jet, they should equally cut down on the salaries and allowances they collect, from the presidency to ministers, national assembly to governors and also local government officials, that’s when we’ll know the sincerity of service of all this folks. I don’t see any sincerity in them all.
Abbas Datti wrote: Still I catch #Buhari red-handed reneging on yet-another campaign pledge. Because what he said during campaign is, he will commercialise the air fleets to generate more revenue for govt. not selling off of the air fleets. No wonder this man is daily turning into a national pariah, even in the northern part of Nigeria. Because he’s always off the track since his accidental assumption. All promises changed from #Nigerianairways to selling off the air fleets.
Omagbemi Ololo wrote: Selling of jets Cannot help anything. Federal and state governments should reduce their allowance by 40 percent to enable the country come out of the present economic recession that is the only way forward.
Kelechi Allison wrote: Before you begin to #hail be reminded that “We intend for instance to bring back our national carrier the Nigeria Airways, we shall do this by bringing all the aircraft in the Presidential fleet into the Nigerian Airways and within one year increase the fleets to twenty.” Buhari in London February 2015.

Jefdon Peter wrote: That is a welcome development to say, since buhari want to sale our national asset. Let him continue after privet jet and presidential villa then “Aso rock” will be the final one to sale.
Jerry Ike Udeh wrote: You want to sale all our property to develops the North, Buhari what of the said money you collected from looter’s, God must surely punish this man.

Whichever way, the fleet is more than enough. Sale or commercialize (the later is better) I support the reduction in number of fleet.

If dem like make dem dash somebody the planes. As long as they remain part of the presidential fleet they would continue to gulp millions in maintenance and the like.

You know them very well. Even if PMB sells all the planes, these people would always have something negative to say.
