Akwa Ibom State governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel may sell a private jet acquired by former governor Godswill Akpabio, it has emerged.
The governor, who apparently does not see the private jet as necessary for the oil-rich state is contemplating the disposal of the aircraft, Vanguard reports.
“Governor Emmanuel is not comfortable with the idea of sustaining the ownership of the jet and is contemplating selling it, more so, because of the slash in states’ allocations and the high cost of aviation fuel,” Vanguard quoted a State Government House source to have said.
Udom, had upon his assumption of office, promised more rapid development. The former Secretary to the State Government is believed to be planning to this by plugging all wastages.
