Against previous speculations, the Presidency has finally concluded plans to dispose of two aircraft in the presidential fleet, The Punch has reported.
The aircraft in question are a Falcon 7x executive jet and Hawker 4000.
In a statement on October 4, the Presidency had confirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari had authorised the sale of the two jets.
Advertisements were then placed in newspapers for interested buyers to bid for the aircraft.
A top Presidency source, The Punch reports, disclosed on condition of anonymity on Monday that the process of selling the aircraft which was handled by the Office of the National Security Adviser had been concluded.
He said, “The bids were opened in the presence of all interested parties about two weeks ago.
“At the end of the exercise, all those who participated commended the process which they described as very transparent.”
When asked about the identities of the preferred bidders and the amount the Federal Government would realise from the sales, the source said the details would soon be made public.
He, however, said the details would only be disclosed after the report of the sales might have been presented to the President for approval.
“The report will be made available to the President first. Once he approves it, it will be made public in accordance with the present administration’s policy,” he said.
