Nigerians sparring after the private use of the presidential jet. The action got social media on fire after Nigerian kept tweeting about the issue.

Who should use Presidential jet?

One clear thing is; the jet should be used by the President, his vice, and the leaders of the legislature. Others suggest that as a member of the First Family, the President’s daughter has earned the right to the jet.

Presidential spokesman Garba Shehu confirmed that the use of the jet by Hanan Buhari for a trip to Bauchi State was no longer irregular. He said this while commenting on development.

The Presidential Air fleet is reachable to the President and the first family and four others. These 4 are the Vice President, the Senate, the Speaker, and any other person(s) permitted through the President.

Hanan used the jet on her way to Bauchi after being invited by Rilwanu Adamu to a durbar last week.

Shehu stated that Hanan’s visit had been duly approved through the president. Due to which the office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) launched the jet.

“It’s real that a member of the First Family was flown to Bauchi yesterday on a mission duly authorized,” Shehu instructed the Punch.

“It wasn’t an impromptu trip because it observed standard procedure. The Presidency informed the National Security Adviser of the mission, who, in turn, told the Commander of the Presidential Air Fleet.

“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) authorized by the President,” he added.
