In response to Peter Obi's criticism of the Federal Government's plans to purchase new aircraft for President Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima, the Presidency, through Special Adviser Bayo Onanuga, has accused Obi of being insensitive. Onanuga defended the government's decision by suggesting that ensuring the safety and reliability of presidential aircraft is crucial for the President's security and effective governance.

Obi had earlier condemned the proposed aircraft purchase, arguing that it was inappropriate at a time when many Nigerians are facing economic hardships due to government policies. His statement implied that such expenditures might be seen as extravagant and out of touch with the realities faced by ordinary citizens.

Speaking with Punch, Onanuga said;

“Does Peter Obi want the President d£ad? Is that his wish? Does he want him to continue moving around in a rickety plane and die like the VP of Malawi and Iran President? Let him tell us. This is a basic thing any sane government will do. You can’t toy with your President’s welfare.

The plane he used now, I learnt, was bought during (former President) Obasanjo’s era. That was over 20 years ago and I learnt it was a very small plane. The plane developed a problem the last time he travelled to Saudi Arabia. The President had to go from there to the UK on a commercial airline. Even those managing them said the aircraft needed to be replaced.

Why would any right-thinking person still want the President to move around in it? In this way, it is the National Assembly that officially recommended that new ones should be bought. Sometimes, Peter Obi opened his mouth to make unnecessary statements.”

The House of Representatives Committee on National Security and Intelligence had recently called on the FG to buy new aircraft for President Bola Tinubu and Vice-President Kashim Shettima.

Then let him use commercial airline but Nigeria cant afford a presidential jet at the moment. Please be honest with yourselves. Not every country got presidential jet. If you think its about his 'class' then let him and his cabal class the civil servants pay and  class  Nigeria as a a country of  laws and orderliness, tribal bigots
