The aircraft, which was allegedly grounded in Kano State when Amaechi paid a condolence visit to Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, came on the heels of the release of the state-owned bombardier aircraft to Rivers after it was grounded for over a year by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA.

According to an online news medium, TheCable, the Kano State Commissioner for Home Affairs, Aminu Abdulsalam Gwarzo, told sympathisers, who came to condole with Kwankwaso over the death of the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, at the Government House, Kano, that the chartered aircraft was grounded by officials of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency on “orders from above”.

The aircraft, which also conveyed the former governor of Gombe State, Senator Danjuma Goje, and a former acting chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje, was reportedly grounded at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano.

Confirming the development, Rivers State Commissioner for Information, Ms Ibim Seminitari, said the aircraft was grounded around 11.30pm.

    Why must it be that every misfortune that happen to the opposition party (APC) is been credited to Mr GEJ & so what of the good things that happen to them, can they also accord it to him. If no then why most they not take their woes for there failure to plan adequately by contacting the right authorities in charge of our air pace b4 embarking on their journey as required.

    Amolo Igwe, you no be better person. You are one of the blind people who follow sheepishly without basic human reasoning. NAMA grounding an aircraft is not a misfortune, they are ordered by people to ground aircrafts. Please grow up and stop saying rubbish. Your beloved president is playing a dirty politics.

“There are so many leakages in the Lagos State Government purse. Take this AlphaBeta; who owns this AlphaBeta? What is the essence of the AlphaBeta? Where else in the world would you have an Inland Revenue Service, who have their own staff who are supposed to go out and collect the fees, but you have an independent company to be supposedly collecting the internally generated revenue from our state?

“It grosses around N50bn (about $130m) a month and you know how much that company (AlphaBeta) is paid 15% of it, that’s N7.5bn in thirty days going to the company, that is a leakage, that is sacrilegious.”
