HURIWA wants Nigeria’s presidential jet returned home for London

A pro-Democracy and Non-Governmental organization, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has stated that the Presidential jet should not remain with President Muhammadu Buhari in London because it belongs to Nigeria.

The group made the remark while faulting the Presidency over its reason why the Presidential jet was retained in London while Buhari undergoes medical treatment.

Recall that Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu had on Thursday explained that the Presidential jet was retained in London due to, “protocol, national security, diplomacy and prestige.”

Shehu had also added that, “no world leader who travels abroad and is left without plans for immediate return or possible evacuation.”

Reacting to the reasons given, the human right group said it makes more economic sense to park the Presidential jet in Abuja the political soul of Nigeria.
