Do you want President Tinubu d£ad? — Presidential aide, Bayo Onanuga, quizzes Peter Obi over his comment on proprosed aircraft purchase

Bayo Onanuga, special adviser on information and strategy to President Bola Tinubu, has berated Peter Obi over his comments on the proposed purchase of a new presidential aircraft.

Recently, the house of representatives committee on national security and intelligence asked the federal government to purchase new aircraft for President Bola Tinubu and Vice-President Kashim Shettima.

The committee’s recommendation was contained in a report released after an investigation into the status of the aircraft in the presidential air fleet.

On Monday, June 17, Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the 2023 election, faulted the proposal saying it highlights the disconnect between the government and the people. Obi said the proposal is unacceptable, adding that there is need for a more compassionate use of resources and prioritising citizens’ welfare.

However, in an interview with Punch Newspaper, Onanuga said the purchase of another aircraft is a necessity. He added that the proposal is a “basic thing any sane government will do” because it cannot toy with the president’s welfare.
“Does Peter Obi want the President d£ad? Is that his wish? Does he want him to continue moving around in a rickety plane and die like the VP of Malawi and Iran President? Let him tell us,” Onanuga said.

“The plane he used now, I learnt, was bought during (former President) Obasanjo’s era. That was over 20 years ago and I learnt it was a very small plane.
The plane developed a problem the last time he travelled to Saudi Arabia. The President had to go from there to the UK on a commercial airline. Even those managing them said the aircraft needed to be replaced.”
