Immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan’s Helipad was pictured and from all indications President Muhammadu Buhari’s $500,000 worth Helipad must be far more expensive.
Former President Jonathan’s helipad was built for him in his Otuoke community by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
A standard helipad it expected to measure 16m by 16m.
President Buhari has been heavily criticised for reports that emerged that the government was building a helipad for him in Daura, Katsina State.
It has been reported that the figure budgeted for the construction of the said helipad is up to $500,000.
Here is the helipad in Otuoke, Bayelsa State.
President Muhammadu Buhari, the then main opposition candidate in the 2015 presidential elections, rode into office on the platform of anti-corruption promising to eliminate government waste.
However, the former military dictator who presented the image of a spartan, has been exposed as the owner of a N2.1 billion lakeside real estate in a choice part of Abuja, Asokoro.
Mrs. Aisha Buhari wore a N10 million wristwatch to her husband’s inauguration in May 2015. This “obscene” lifestyle has caught the attention of the international press.
Critics of Buhari allege that his “anti-corruption” persona is a fraud designed to deceive Nigerians.
