Do You Want Tinubu Dead? – Onanuga Tackles Peter Obi Over Purchase of New Aircraft

The Special Adviser on Information and Strategy to Bola Tinubu, Bayo Onanuga, has tackled Peter Obi over his comments on the proposed purchase of a new presidential aircraft for Tinubu.

Recall that on June 17, the House of Representatives committee on National Security and Intelligence asked the federal government to purchase new aircraft for Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima.

But speaking on the development on Monday, Obi, faulted the proposal, saying it highlights the disconnect between the government and the people.

According to Obi, the proposal is unacceptable, adding that there is need for a more compassionate use of resources and prioritising citizens’ welfare.

Meanwhile, reacting to Obi’s comment in an interview with newsmen, Onanuga said the purchase of another aircraft is a necessity.

In his words, ” Does Peter Obi want the Tinubu dead? 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, 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. Tinubu had to go from there to the UK on a commercial airline.

“Even those managing them said the aircraft needed to be replaced,” he said.
