Akpabio dismisses claims of new aircraft for Tinubu, Shettima

President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has dismissed claims that the Senate proposed new aircraft for President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima.

Akpabio, in a statement on Tuesday by his Special Assistant on Print Media, Jackson Udom, clarified during a condolence visit to Sen. Tahir Monguno over the death of his father.

The president of the Senate said the report attributing the comment to him on the purchase of a new aircraft is from propagandists and fifth columnists.

Akpabio said the Senate is focused on delivering legislation that would support actualisation of President Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda.

According to him, “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.

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