Nigerian Government Auctions Off Three Presidential Aircraft to Streamline Fleet

Written by gcsjjustified

The Nigerian federal government has put three ageing presidential aircraft up for sale to reduce excessive spending on fleet maintenance. The aircraft, including a Boeing 737 Boeing Business Jet (BBJ), a Gulfstream, and a Falcon 7x, are being marketed by a US-based airline marketer, JetHQ. The proceeds from the sale will be used to purchase a new jet for the fleet. This move is seen as a cost-cutting measure amid economic challenges and safety concerns about the condition of the current fleet. The sale is part of a broader plan to upgrade the presidential air fleet, with lawmakers recommending the purchase of two new aircraft for the president and vice-president.
