– Proceeds to fund purchase of new aircraft

The Federal Government has decided to sell three ageing aircraft from the presidential fleet to reduce maintenance costs.

The aircraft, including a Boeing 737 BBJ, Gulfstream, and Falcon 7x, will be sold through a US-based airline marketer, JetHQ. The sale is expected to generate funds for the purchase of new aircraft.

Meanwhile, the presidential fleet has come under scrutiny due to its poor condition, with at least half of the aircraft deemed unserviceable or failing.

Legislators have called for the modernization of the fleet, citing safety concerns after several incidents involving the current aircraft. The government has received preliminary offers for the aircraft and is seeking optimal deals.

The sale of the aircraft is a controversial move, with some lawmakers arguing that it is insensitive to the economic hardships faced by the populace.
