Gov. Amaechi’s Chartered Aircraft Allegedly Impounded in Kano



Gov Amaechi Bella Naija

The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency allegedly grounded Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s chartered aircraft in Kano on Sunday.

The Rivers State governor was in town to pay a condolence visit to Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso over the death of the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero when the incident occurred, Punch reports.

Former governor of Gombe State, Danjuma Goje, and a former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Abubakar Kawu Baraje, were reportedly also transported to Kano via the aircraft.

It is still unclear why the plane was impounded. Nigerian Airspace Management Agency allegedly cited “orders from above,” as the reason why the aircraft was seized.

    You can’t impound an aircraft as though it was stolen or not paid for or as though he missed a payment. It gave me a headache reading that his aircraft was grounded and then the title said it was impounded. Two different terminologies here folks. Which is it? Grounded or impounded, they are both juicy stories to read but which one is it?

    Only in Nigeria will an organization in charge of air safety issue a statement citing “orders from above” for grounding someone’s aircraft. The heck? Who does that? Apparently Nigeria but for f**k sake? This Governor guy has suffered o! I read a while back stories about his aircraft being grounded and its happening again. Is he the only aircraft operator in Nigeria? If this is a personal vendetta from the President, I’d say the dude should be very careful. You’re constantly seeking foreign investors to come to Nigeria for the purpose of growing the aviation sector and making Nigeria a hub for aviation in Africa and here you are claiming democracy for government and acting completely like a dictator. If the dude’s aircraft is not a flight risk, they should release his aircraft for operation.

    That is not the true story. Amaechi chartered that plane to go and convince the governor of kano to change the name of the new Amir of Kano from Bayer to Laid Sanusi. This is all an APC agenda.. that is what he has been using River’s government money for

    Please they should inform Mr. Rotimi Amaechi to remember what he said about Peter Odili about wasting the money of river people , he should seat down now and count what he have waist in the money of rivers people from charter flight to Ondo state in aim of going to Ekiti state and the one he paid now to charter the one he use for Kano own now, And non of the he succeed get to his target place, and that is sing of failure, Rotimi should use his mouth to count his teeth.
