- Hanan Buhari's use of presidential jet has been praised by MURIC
- According to the group, Hanan Buhari symbolises courage, hope and success
- The group added that Hanan passed a strong message to the Nigerian girl-child by covering the durbar
Hanan Buhari flying on a presidential jet on an ”official” assignment is a strong message to the youth, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) claimed.
This was disclosed by Ishaq Akintola, MURIC director, on Monday, January 13.
He said Hanan passed a strong message to the Nigerian girl-child by covering the durbar.
“How private is private? Are we saying that the traditional institution is inconsequential? What happened to our respect for our norms and values? Are we to assume that our system no longer recognises the traditional institution? If so, why do governors still appoint emirs, obis and obas? If the law of the land still recognises traditional rulers, Hanan’s invitation to Bauchi cannot be rightly described as a private affair.
“Besides, that function passed a strong message to Nigerian youths, especially the Nigerian girl-child. It poses a challenge to them to eschew laziness.
“More importantly, it underlines the significance and relevance of every aspect of human knowledge. This is a very important message wailers missed, Akintola said.
Going further, the MURIC director said Hanna's use of the jet is better than the way it was used before.
“President Buhari should not be guillotined for permitting his daughter’s use of the jet. After all, it was not for any frivolous jamboree like shopping in Dubai. We may want to ignore the excesses of past landlords of Aso Rock to justify PMB’s action.
“It amounts to overzealouness on the part of critics to grab every little straw and make mountains out of mole hills.
“They are simply trying to draw the attention of Nigerians away from PMB’s monumental achievements simply because they were merely looking for the president’s faults,” he added.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that notable human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, added a voice to the controversies raised by the use of a presidential jet by Hanan Buhari, daughter of Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Falana, the use of the presidential jet by the president’s daughter for personal engagements is illegal.
The senior legal practitioner urged the president to discourage family members from further use of aircraft in the fleet for their individual activities.
The lawyer argued through a statement on Sunday, January 12, that the policy of the country does not permit the president’s children to fly the presidential jets when they are attending social events.
