The House of Representatives Committee on National Security and Intelligence has recommended that the Federal Government purchase new aircraft for President Bola Tinubu and Vice-President Kashim Shettima, as detailed in a report released after it investigated the status of the aircraft in the presidential air fleet.

“The committee is of the strong and informed opinion that, considering the fragile structure of the Nigerian federation and recognizing the dire consequences of any foreseen or unforeseen mishap that may arise as a result of the technical or operational inadequacy of the presidential air fleet, it is in the best interest of the country to procure two additional aircraft as recommended,” the report reads.

“This will also prove to be most cost-efficient in the long run, apart from the added advantage of providing a suitable, comfortable, and safe carrier befitting of the status and responsibilities of the office of the president and vice-president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

The House of Representatives in May tasked the committee with investigating the aircraft in the presidential fleet to determine their airworthiness and technical status.

This is coming after the presidential jet developed some faults while Tinubu was in the Netherlands in April for an official visit.
