The Federal Government has finally advertised the sale of two aircrafts in the presidential fleet, after months of public outcry for government to make the move to reduce spending.
According to an advert published in a national daily, a Falcon 7x and Hawker 4000 are the aircraft to be disposed. The advert contained the aircraft highlight, performance date and images of the interior.
Interested buyers were asked to inspect the Falcon at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International, Airport, Abuja, and the Hawker at Cessna Zurich Citation Service Centre, Zurich, Switzerland.
The office of the National Security Adviser, NSA, which is in charge of the sale, pointed out that all bids should be quoted in US dollars. This demand may be an indication that the government is trying to avoid the exchange rate risks presently being experienced by businesses in the country.
