It is insensitive to contemplate buying presidential jets while Nigerians suffer – Obi to FG

It is insensitive to contemplate buying presidential jets while Nigerians suffer – Obi to FG


The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has expressed disapproval of the Federal Government’s consideration to add new aircraft to the existing Presidential fleet.

This comes after the House of Representatives Committee on National Security and Intelligence recommended the purchase of new planes for President Bola Tinubu and Vice-President Kashim Shettima.


Reacting in a post on his verified X handle on Monday; Obi termed the move as “unacceptable” and “insensitive” to the economic hardships faced by Nigerians.

He stated that it is unfortunate that the government is prioritizing luxury expenses while the country struggles with economic challenges.

“It is unacceptable that the government is considering purchasing new presidential jets when Nigerians are wallowing in poverty,” Obi said in a statement on his social media handle.


“This is a clear show of insensitivity to the suffering of the Nigerian people.”

Obi’s criticism comes as the country grapples with economic woes and the government’s decision to sell three planes from the Presidential Air Fleet earlier this year.
