FG grounds Governor Amaechi's private plane over expired permit

The Federal Government yesterday Saturday April 27th grounded a Bombardier BD700, Global Express with tag no N565 RS owned by the Rivers State government.

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, (NCAA) said the plane, which is Governor Rotimi Amaechi's private plane, has been operating illegally as it's clearance to operate expired since April 2, 2013.

The Director of airworthiness standards of the NCAA, Engineer Benedict Adeyileka, explained:
"The controversial aircraft on the service of Governor Rotimi Amaechi is operating illegally in the country. The aircraft has its clearance approval expired since Tuesday, April 2, 2013, by our records the last flight clearance for this aircraft was approved for operations on Thursday 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 forty eight hours leeway for it to leave the country.



“While still operating illegally, the aircraft has been sighted in several places, including Owerri and Akure, the owner of this aircraft according to the certificate of registration is Bank of Utah Trustees of Salt Lake City, Utah United States of America.



“The clearance for the aircraft was sought by Caverton Helicopters on March 27, 2013.



“NCAA did not ground the aircraft prior to request for start up in Akure on Friday 26, April 2013.



Consequently, this aircraft in reference is hereby grounded at any airport that it is located right now in the country."

Oh great! no one is above the law after all. FG has given him a taste of the bitter pill he shoves down our throats daily in Phc via TIMARIV. Hehehehe how does grounding ur plane feel Mr Gov???

You have or stole the money to buy a plane worth millions of dollars but can't pay for your permit, how pathetic!
Cupidity is so engrossed in our leaders that even the little things that need to be done are evaded with the help of their corrupt mentality, how sad! SMH!

I have been expecting something like this from that clown called Badluck bcos Amaechi has always stood against the Muppet. They can do anything to frustrate your life if you don't dance to their Makosa beat.

Everything have been politicized!!!

Linda in your article you contradict yourself. You first clim it belongs to The Rivers State Government and later you state it's Governor Amechi's PJ. We both know it's the states plane used by the current Governor, just like the former PJ was used , depreciated and eventually sold and this one purchased. Please be unbiased and Factual in your so called blogging. You should stop speculating in cheap sensationalism.

GEJ has seen his SS replacement and is trying to eliminate all contenders from his zone. He should be very fearful of Gov. Amechi, the guy is a complete BOSS!!!!!

Get your facts straight before saying crap.

The pilot made sure everything was up to date before taking off, even when they got to Akure, he presented d documents and clearance form to NCAA... All these Mumbo-Jumbo about expired Document is just an act to paint him as a horrible person. This Guy (Gov. Ameachi) is a Very good and humble guy and has done VERY well for the people of Rivers State.
The Federal Government should focus on developing Our country Nigeria and leave Ameachi to focus on developing Rivers State.

The company I work for sold off all its private airline because it cost a fortune to operate and manage. My oyinbo VP looked at me in the eye and said only idiots that don"t know what to do with money will buy and operate a private plane. It makes no sense. I looked at him and smiled. Only if he knew how many private jet fools are in Nigeria

Linda this is the last time I will comment on your blog, cos each time I do I don't see my comments, I don't cuss I try to keep it clean but you still don't post it. It takes courage to post something on your blog, while it take so long for you to upload comments and when you finally do, you don't post all, it ain't fair. Never mind I will look for some where else where my comments can be heard. One love
