PMB Returns To Nigeria

Published

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday returned to Nigeria after a state visit to the United States of America. The president landed in Abuja airport at about 10.30pm.

The president had a brief stopover in London which the presidency attributed to the small size of the plane.

Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu said the  President is using a small plane and there is a limit to the distance the small plane can cover.

He explained “The big jet is under repair. It has been taken for major repairs. So the President is using a small plane and there is a limit to the distance the small plane can cover.

“So the technical stopover I talked about is that the journey from US to Abuja is broken into two. Technical stopover is that the plane stops at a point, refuel, do some checks and then proceed on the journey.

“This is very normal. There is nothing unusual about it. In any case, they are already on their way back home.

“It is a routine thing. The plane can do Abuja-Washington, that’s about 12 hours and the maximum the plane can fly is 12 hours, 40minutes. But you don’t need to push it to the edge,” he said .
