Akpabio said this on Thursday at an emergency session of the Upper Chamber which was convened to consider an extension of the implementation period for the capital component of N21.83trillion 2023 budget, and those of the N2.17trillion 2023 supplementary budget.

The Senate President who addressed earlier reports in a section of the media where he was credited to have said that the Red Chamber would approve the purchase of a new presidential jet regardless of the economic hardship faced by Nigerians, added that no such request for a new jet has come before the legislator

“I have never had that correspondence to approve the purchase of a plane. We care about the President, we care about Nigerians. We will approve things that will benefit the people.”

“There is nothing before us. But the purveyors of the story know that there is a problem with the presidential fleet.”

He then disclosed that it would go ahead to approve any such request when it comes to avert the fate suffered by the Vice President of Malawi and the President of Iran who died in aeroplane and helicopter crashes respectively.
