Gowon stated this at a time the Senate was considering a motion to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari over the purchase of Tucano aircraft at a cost of $496 million without legislative approval.

Gowon said: "It will be too early in the day to start impeaching presidents in Nigeria‎, otherwise, there will be no president that will not get impeached because of these interest groups". earlier reported that amid cries from main opposition party PDP that President Muhammadu Buhari's anti-corruption war is selective, U.S. president Donald Trump backed the Nigerian leader's achievements in his anti-graft campaigns.

"The big jet is under repairs".

Although the president has arrived Abuja, Nigeria, the development had sparked reactions from Nigerians who said the president had not included the United Kingdom trip in his travel itinerary.

Buhari, who travelled to the United States for a meeting with President Donald Trump, had left Washington, D.C. on Tuesday after the Monday meeting. "The technical stop-over I talked about is that the journey from United States to Abuja is broken into two", Mr Shehu added.

Shehu also explained that the flight crew travelling with President Buhari chose to break the long journey to refuel and do the routine checks.

"It is a routine thing". This is very normal. But you don't need to push it to the edge.

"Indeed, Nigerians are anxious about the signal being sent out by this penchant for secret itinerary, particularly, given the poor reputation and governance transparency issues confronting our country in the Buhari administration".

Mr Obasanjo backed Mr Buhari in his bid for the presidency in 2015, but has refused to endorse him for a second term in elections due in February.

"Instead, the president has continued to de-market our nation in the global arena".
