The Presidency on Saturday said the wife and children of President Muhammadu Buhari have the right to fly the Presidential jet whenever need be.
Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President, said criticisms from a few Nigerians over the President’s daughter’s use of the Presidential jet for a private function was not necessary.
Shehu said Hanan received approval from the President who in turn ordered the National Security Adviser to make the Jet available for her daughter.
Shehu said, “The normal practice in existence for a long time is that the Presidential Air fleet is available to the President and the first family and four others. These four are the Vice President, the Senate President the Speaker and any other person(s) authorised by the President.”
Many Nigerians have been raging online following the decision of President Buhari to allow Hanan to use the jet for a personal use, that will cost the country N8.5bn to service in 2020.
