Senate will give approval for Tinubu’s presidential jet – Akpabio

The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, has made it clear that no “anticipated” blackmail, will stop the lawmakers from approving the purchase of the presidential plane if the need arises.

The Senate however insisted that there was no request for the approval of the purchase of a presidential jet before it.

This was made known at the plenary on Thursday by Akpabio, when he clarified social media news on his comments on the purchase of the plane.

He said, “We care about the president and we care about the Nigerian people. We will approve things that will benefit the Nigerian people.

“We will approve things that would improve the living standard of the people. At the same time, we will also take cognizance of the duties of the president.

“If his vehicle is bad, we will repair the vehicle. If his plane is bad, we will approve money for the repair of the plane. So that is not an issue. There is nothing before us.

I don’t think you should worry about it.”
