Akwa Ibom State governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, is not finding private jet ownership a worthwhile investment.
Vanguard gathered in Uyo, yesterday, that in view of Governor Emmanuel’s unfavourable disposition to the private jet acquired by his predecessor, Chief Godswill Akpabio to ease his movement outside the state, he is contemplating disposing of the aircraft.
Since his inauguration on May 29, 2015, Emmanuel is said to prefer travelling by chartered helicopters which he considers less-ostentatious.
An Akwa Ibom State Government House source said that the governor was shopping for buyers of the jet to relieve him of the burden of fuelling and maintaining it.
The source could, however, not disclose the cost of fuelling and maintaining the jet.
