Reports that the senate would approve the purchase of new aircrafts for the presidential fleet are the handiwork of propagandists, according to Akpabio

The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has dismissed reports that the 10th Senate is proposing the procurement of new aircraft for President Bola Tinubu and his Vice, Senator Kashim Shettima.

Speaking to newsmen in Maiduguri shortly after leading a delegation to pay a condolence visit to Senator Tahir Monguno over the death of his father, Akpabio noted that the report is not true.

Last week, reports filtered in the media that the Senate President made a comment that the red chamber would approve the purchase of new aircraft for the President and Vice President irrespective of the grim economic conditions in the country.

The Senate President said the report was from propagandists and fifth columnists, stressing that the Senate was focused on delivering legislations to support the actualisation of President Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda.

Akpabio, who expressed satisfaction with the present security situation in Borno state, urged Nigerians to continue to pray for the present administration.

He said: “I want to dispel the rumour that you are hearing that the Senate President said he will buy a new plane for the President and his Vice, irrespective of the fact that Nigerians are hungry or whatever. 

“I never said that. I was actually in Zanzibar, Tanzania. It is the handiwork of propagandists and fifth columnists, who never see anything good in what we are doing. Be rest assured, pray for the government, have patience and be assured that the combination of Tinubu and Shettima will bring wealth and prosperity to all.

“I am happy to see that peace has returned to Borno, as a result of the hardwork of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I want to tell the good of people of Borno to continue to support the administration.”
