President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Joe Ajaero, on Tuesday, said President Bola Tinubu told labour leaders that in order to reduce the cost of governance, he lives in a two bedroom apartment and flies in his own private jet.
Ajaero disclosed these while featuring on Channels Television Politics Today programme.
On Thursday last week, the organised labour had called off its nationwide protest after holding a meeting with President Tinubu.
But while speaking on the television programme, Ajaeero said, “During our meeting with the President, we complained about the high cost of governance. We told him that when he appoints ministers, they will appoint SSAs and the SSAs will also appoint SSAs. But the president said we should look at it from the point of job creation, but we did not agree with that.
“He took his own case for example. He told us that if you come to his fleet of cars, it was large and he made efforts to reduce it, but he was told that it’s a security issue.
“He equally went further to say that he prefers to use his own private jet but told not to because as a matter of security, he must use the government jet. And he went further to say, even himself, that he’s using only a two-bedroom flat. That he’s trying as much as possible to tighten his belt and he would try as much as possible to talk to the people working with him. I don’t know what that means.”
