A Presidential fleet, Hawker 4000 aircraft with registration number, 5N-FGX/:RC 066 has been put up for sale by the Federal Government.
VANTAGE NEWS gathered the information from an FG published advert on different national newspapers, Wednesday.
From the published advert, the FG revealed that the business-size jet which entered into service in December 2011, has capacity for nine passengers and three crew.
It addition to disclosing that the aircraft has a range of 3,190-nautical mile and had flown for 1,768 hours, the FG stated that it could be inspected at the Presidential Air Fleet’s hangar located at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
While calling on interested buyers to submit their closed bid to the Chairman, Committee for Sale of Aircraft, Office of the National Security Adviser, care of Special Services Office, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, it directed prospective buyers to submit refundable bank draft for $50,000 to the committee with the bid quoted in United State dollars.
Some Nigerians had called on the presidency to sell some of its jets to raise fund to be injected into the economy.
It remains to be seen, however, if such demands had anything to do with FG’s desire to sell the Hawker 4000 aircraft.
