The former Special Assistant to the governor of Akwa Ibom state, Ata Ikiddeh has faulted the the first family for using the nation’s Presidential Jet for personal business.
Mr. Ikiddeh, was apparently reacting to a photo of Zahra Buhari and her husband which surfaced online during the week.
The former SA took to his Facebook page to voice his disapproval of such inglorious development.

“The President’s Daughter And His Son Inlaw Now Use The Nation’s Presidential Jet Without The President!
If This is Not Wrong And Condemnable I Wonder What Is! Especially When You’ve Issued Orders, Your Ministers Should Not Fly First Class Or Travel Ostentatiously.
Besides The Presidential Jet Is For The Sole Use Of Mr President And His Wife. This May Also Include Any Other Persons He May Wish To Travel With.
What Is Happening In This Photo Is So Irresponsible?
The Presidential jet is not a family aircraft. It belongs to the nation and costs about N15m a month to maintain. Trumps kids will not get on Airforce 1.
We are in a recession, the President should lead by example, there many people who can’t afford one square meal a day and the President’s kids are flying in the nation’s official jet that costs N15m a month (N170m a year ) to maintain and over N1.5m to N2m to run on a single local flight.
It is indefensible!!!!”
