Nigeria is reportedly selling two of its 10 Presidential Jets in a bid to cut down on waste.

According to the BBC, the selling of the jets was announced by   President Muhammadu Buhari’s Spokesperson, Garba Shehu.

Spokesperson Shehu said Advertisements for the Falcon 7X Executive Jet and Hawker 4000 are to appear in newspapers.

He said some of the other Presidential Aircrafts are being handed to the Nigerian Air Force to boost its operation.

Nigeria is one of Africa's leading economies, but the West African house power is now suffering from its worst economic crisis in years.

Mr. Shehu also said the downsizing of the President Fleet had been a campaign promise made by President Buhari before his election last year.

He, however, said President Buhari had requested a compact and reliable aircraft for transporting government officials on special missions.
