The Federal Government has banned the official plane of Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, for “operating illegally in the country.” (See beef- its because Rotimi Amaechi has been speaking up for some time, let’s check other governors is their air crafts are also cleared to fly most definitely non of them)
The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency had on Friday temporarily grounded the Bombardier – BD700 Global Express aircraft in Akure, Ondo State, over the pilot’s alleged inability to provide the manifest of the plane.
However, the aviation industry regulator, Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, on Saturday, announced that the aircraft had been banned from flying in Nigeria.
The Director of Airworthiness and Standards, NCAA, Mr. Benedict Adeyileka, alleged that the aircraft had been flying illegally to several places, including Owerri in Imo State and Akure.
The statement read in part, “The controversial aircraft on the service of Governor Rotimi Amaechi is operating illegally in the country. The clearance approval of the Bombardier BD700 Global Express, with registration number N565RS, expired since April 2, 2013.
“By our records, the last flight clearance for this aircraft was approved for operations on March 28, 2013 on Accra/Port Harcourt and Accra to terminate on April 2, 2013. With this development, the aircraft has exceeded the extra two days or 48 hours leeway for it to leave the country.
“Consequently, this aircraft in reference is hereby grounded at any airport that is located right now in the country.”
