‘It Is Illegal For Children Of The President To Use Presidential Jets’ – Femi Falana

Presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, earlier insisted that, the family members of the president have the right to use presidential jets

It Is Illegal For Children Of The President To Use Presidential Jets - Femi Falana

Reacting to Shehu’s comment, Femi Falana, senior Nigerian lawyer, counter the presidential spokesperson, claiming it is illegal for children of a president in the country to use the presidential jets for personal engagements

Falana however urges President Muhammadu Buhari to discourage further occurrence as it would help cut cost of governance.

Falana added a voice to the controversies raised by the use of a presidential jet by Hanan Buhari, daughter of Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari.

According to Falana, the use of the presidential jet by the president’s daughter for personal engagements is illegal.

He urged the president to discourage family members from further use of aircraft in the fleet for their individual activities.

In a statement on Sunday, January 12, Falana argued that the policy of the country does not permit the president’s children to fly the presidential jets when they are attending social events

He said;

In fact, there is no precedent whatsoever for such privatisation of the presidency of Nigeria,” the lawyer said in the statement.

The so called ‘normal practice’ of using the aircraft in the presidential fleet by members of the first family to attend to private engagements is not backed by any extant law or official policy.
