President Muhammadu Buhari is set to sell of some aircraft which make up the presidential fleet.
This was disclosed by Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
Shehu said via Twitter on September 8
“There is a govt committee already in place, working to reduce the number of aircraft in the presidential fleet,”
The presidential aide made the comment after being challenged by a Twitter user, Japheth Omojuwa following the launch of Buhari’s “Change Begins With Me” campaign.
During the launch, Buhari urged Nigerians to start changing their bad habits before expecting change of the government.
Omojuwa however urged the president to reduce the presidential fleet before expecting Nigerians to change.
“Change begins with selling the presidential jets.
ONLY a genuinely rich country should think of having up to 3. We have about 10 jets,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, civic organization, BudgIT has also called on Buhari to lead change in the country by setting a good example for citizens to follow.
