2019: "I Can Use Presidential Jet Whenever I Wish To", Buhari Replies PDP
President Muhammadu Buhari has told the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP that he can use the presidential jet whenever he wants including for political rallies.
The Head of Communications and Strategy of the President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, Festus Keyamo stated this on Tuesday.
He criticised a spokesman of the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, Phrank Shuaibu, who had called on the President not to waste taxpayers’ money.
Keyamo stated that asking the President not to use the presidential jet to attend rallies was like asking him to move out of the Presidential Villa or to be using taxis to move around.
The Senior Advocate said the opposition must realise that Buhari is not just a presidential candidate but also the leader of the nation and as such, his security remains paramount.
Atiku’s spokesman Shaibu had yesterday asked Buhari not to waste taxpayers money on flying round for poltical rallies.
“He has come out to say he has failed and it has nothing to do with our party. You know as well that here is a man that was sworn in on May 29, 2015 and inaugurated his cabinet after 166 days, leaving the economy in the hands of the Central Bank of Nigeria and he left many things unattended to and we slipped into a recession which we hadn’t seen since 1991.
“So, saying the PDP is his problem is completely out of context. “Why waste tax payers’ money to go into an election? So that he will spend money junketing from one place to the other? Using our presidential jet and tax payer’s money to fund it? Impossible! Let us leave the country to more serious people to run,” Shuaibu said.
