BREAKING: Tinubu Didn’t Ask For Presidential Yacht – Spokesman
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s spokesperson, Tope Ajayi, has said the president did not ask for a presidential yacht.
Since information about the N2.1 trillion supplemental budget Tinubu submitted to the National Assembly was made public, there has been indignation.
According to the budget, N5.09 billion was allocated for the yacht, N2.9 billion for sport utility vehicles for the Presidential Villa, and another N2.9 billion for the replacement of operational vehicles for the presidency.
The yacht was included in the N42.3 billion capital expenditure plan for the Nigerian Navy.
Reacting to the criticisms that have trailed the issue, Ajayi said he doubted if his principal needed one to perform the functions of his office.
