Presidency to Sell Three Jets To Augment Purchase of New Jet

Abuja, Nigeria 

 

To ease public concerns over the government’s decision to purchase a new presidential jet amid economic challenges, the federal administration plans to sell three existing aircraft from its fleet.

This move aims to curb maintenance costs and align expenditures with fiscal prudence. A government insider disclosed to Truth Live News

“We saw the report and recommendation by the lawmakers. But the truth of the matter is that we can not afford to buy two aircraft at a go, even though we are selling off others. The approval now is to find one whose cost is not too much that we can augment with what we raise from this sale,”

“Yes, we have received two offers for the BBJ and one for the Falcon X. But the NSA insisted that we must press for a better deal instead of rushing to have a bad deal for the government,”

Regarding offers received, Truth Live News gathered that the National Security Adviser emphasized the need for prudent negotiations. Online reactions have called for transparent auctioning of the three jets to rebuild public trust in the presidency’s decision-making process.
