The Presidency has debunked reports that Pres. Buhari ordered the sale of 9 out of the 11 presidential jets.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Shehu Garba, in an interview with Premium Times, said he is not aware of such a directive
“The story of the order for the sale of aircrafts in the Presidential Fleet, about which so much interest is being expressed, is not known to us,” he said.
Part of the jets in the presidential fleet and strictly for the President’s use includes Boeing 737, two Gulfstream 550 jets, Gulfstream V jet, two Falcon 7X planes, the Hawker Siddeley aircraft, and Augusta Westland chopper.
