The federal government has put one of the jets in the presidential fleet up for sale.

The Hawker 4000 aircraft with registration number, 5N-FGX/: RC 066, was advertised for sale in a call for bid published in some national dailies on Wednesday.

The Cable reports that the cost was not indicated but Aviation Week Network, a global aviation platform, quoted Hawker Beechcraft, the manufacturers of the aircraft, as valuing it for $22.9 million as of 2012.

The advert said the jet, which has been in use since December 2011, has capacity for nine passengers and three crew members, and a range of 3,190-nautical mile flown.

It said interested buyers should inspect the aircraft at the presidential air fleet’s hangar located at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Interested buyers were also requested to submit their closed bid to the committee for sale of aircraft at the office of the national security adviser (NSA), alongside a bank draft of $50,000.
