President Muhammadu Buhari has released two of the jets in the presidential fleet for sale amid calls for reduction of his aircraft.
The jets up for sale are a Falcon 7x and a Hawker 4000 which are both in Abuja and Switzerland respectively.
Leadership reports that government has advertised in a national daily the sale of a Falcon 7x and a Hawker 4000.
It reports that the 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.
Apparently, the sale is to generate foreign currency as Leadership reports that the office of the national security adviser, which is in charge of the sale, said all bids must be in US dollars.
This confirms a Tweet by presidential spokesman Garba Shehu in September that “There is a govt committee already in place, working to reduce the number of aircraft in the Presidential fleet.”
