Whats the Truth about this Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s New $60 Million Purchase

There’s no Nigerian anywhere in the world that would deny not knowing who Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is. The title ASIWAJU speaks of a great and extraordinary leader of men.

The man of exceptional influence one of those who orchestrated how the last Government of the PDP as led by Ex-president Dr. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan was ejected, is also the great Jagaban of Borgu, that’s a title bestowed on him in the Northern part of Nigeria, to show how far extended his influence has reached.

He is also the National leader of the ruling APC, A former Senator of the great state of Lagos, the former 2 time Governor of the state of aquatic excellence, Lagos and like it is said, Governor Emeritus of the same State. Unconfirmed report just reaching us has suggested that the great man might have just taken delivery of a brand spanking new “Private Jet”, a “Bombardier Global Express XRS”, said to be valued at about $60 million USD. More after the break.

This brand as described by the manufacturer, is “an ultra long range, large cabin jet”. It replaced its other very highly successful older other sibling the Global Express when it was significantly upgraded in 2003. It is able to complete “transcontinental and Intercontinental” flights effortlessly, with ease and with unbelievable speed for its size.Reaching an altitude of 37000 foot altitude in just 20minutes maximum at initial climb. The Bombardier Global Express XRS has a 6100+ nautical miles range. It can take off or land at lower speeds. Its long range cruise speed is 470ktas and high speed cruise 499ktas. This is just too awesome to say the least. The inside of this “awesome jet” which accommodates ,”8 passengers conveniently” is described as a “lap in luxury” of the best and most awesome kind.

What the above specifications simply implies is that it can travel a very long distance, flying much higher altitudes without necessarily refueling constantly in unbelievable luxury. So it is super comfort in exceptional luxury in the air.

If this acquisition is factual, it would make ASIWAJU join the rarefied league of the association of the owners of such an humongous jet, which includes the likes of Africa’s wealthiest man alive bar none, the yet unmatchable “Alhaji Aliko Dangote”, Africa’s top 10 rated richest man, the guru behind Globacom and several other brands, “Otunba ‘Dr’ Mike Agbolade Adenuga Jnr.”, & the richest/wealthiest black woman alive and Executive Vice-chairman of Famfa Oil, Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija. This would make it the second private jet owned by the great ASIWAJU.
