Chief Orji Kalu, the immediate past governor of Abia state and Chairman of Slok Group of Companies has purchased a brand new Gulfstream G650 jet worth $72 million (N11.5 billion).
The jet, according to www.bayoadeyinka.com, landed Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, in the early hours of Thursday 18 September from New York.
“It is arguably the fastest civilian jet in the world, has room for a basketball team, 8,000-statute-mile range and some of the most sophisticated avionics rivaling nearly anything in the sky, and it’s also perfect for doing business on a global scale.
Gulfstream described the aircraft as ultra-high-speed, ultra-long-range business jet and the gold standard in business aviation. Former governor of Borno state, Ali Modu Sheriff was first to acquire the jet in Nigeria,” writes the blogger.
