A closer look shows that the black Mercedes Benz Maybach is old, the colour is devoid of any sheen and there are scratches at the back bumper. Even the tyres appear to have seen better days.
NAN learnt President Buhari has refused to change the fleet he inherited from his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, since 2015.
President Buhari’s still using cars inherited from Jonathan In 2016, the president, who had cut his salary by 50 per cent, struck out a move to spend N400 million on new cars for him.
The money was to be used to buy five new armoured Mercedes Benz S-600 (V222) cars. President believes the cars passed on to him, can still last another 10 years, thus helping the nation conserve scarce funds.
No wonder, the Buhari government, as Vice President Osinbajo has said repeatedly, is doing much more with the nation’s financial resources, despite the declining income.
This is in sharp contrast with the profligate Jonathan years, when oil at a stage was selling at $140 a barrel and the nation became poorer for it.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari landed in the night of Thursday, May 3, at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja after a successful official visit to the United States where he held bilateral talks with President Donald Trump.
