“No Law, Policy Backs Your Family Members’ Use Of Presidential Aircraft” – Falana to Buhari
Written by admin on January 13, 2020
On Sunday, January 12, Human-rights lawyer, Femi Falana called on President Muhammadu Buhari to respect the official policy of the Federal Government and stop members of his family from using any of the aircraft in the presidential fleet forthwith.
Some pictures emerged in the social media on Saturday showing that Buhari’s daughter, Hanan was conveyed in the presidential jet to attend the Durbar in Bauchi, last Thursday, on the invitation of the Emir of Bauchi, Rilwanu Adamu.
In the statement titled, “President’s Children Are Not Authorised to use Presidential Jets”, he described Hanan Buhari’s use of a presidential jet for a private engagement as an utter breach of the official policy of the Federal Government. Noting that there was no such precedence, he stressed that his call on Buhari to stop the members of the family from using any of the aircraft in the presidential fleet was also with a view to cutting down on waste.
