President Buhari Bars Ministers, Govt Officials From Flying First Class

President Muhammadu Buhari has banned ministers and all top officials
of government from flying first class while embarking on officials trips.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by Mr Festus Akanbi, the Media Adviser to the finance minister, Kemi Adeosun, in Abuja on Wednesday.
According to the statement, henceforth, all top officials of government such as ministers, permanent secretaries, Chairmen of Federal Government Committees, as well as Chairmen and Chief Executives of Parastatals and Agencies are to travel on business class.
Akanbi said the new directive has been captured in a circular on review of overhead expenses released by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
He said the development is one of the recommendations made by the Efficiency Unit which was set up by the Minister of Finance last last year, aimed at reducing overheard expenses.
