President Muhammadu Buhari has restricted the use of aircraft in the presidential fleet by his wife, Hajiya Aisha, and relations.
It was learnt that some members of the First Family will now use.....commercial flight, unless it becomes compelling for them to fly in presidential aircraft.
Apart from saving cost, the President is said to be determined to prevent abuse of the presidential fleet.
To set example for others, the President made sure that his wife and three children performed Umrah (Lesser Hajj) to Makkah through Emirates Airline.
They also came back with the same airline.
The President was worried by the security reports on high cost of maintaining the presidential aircraft and abuse by some highly-placed Nigerians.
Drop a comment....thanks!
