Nigerian billionaires planning to buy private jets and bring into the country will not be happy with the Federal Government over this new decision.
The Federal Government has suspended the importation of private airplanes, helicopters and other lighter aircraft into the country.
According to the Special Assistant (Media) to the Minister of Aviation, Mr. Joe Obi;
''The domestic airlines are free to bring in their normal passenger planes. But the suspension only affects private jets. The government is trying to work on a new policy for the private jet.
“You will agree with me that the current policy on private jets is old, and there is a need to renew it. Pending that renewal, all applications for importation for now will have to hold on.”
