Gov Amaechi Stranded In Akure As Jonathan Grounds Bombardier Jet

The political disagreement between Nigeria’s president Goodluck Jonathan and Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi took a new dimension today as aviation agencies prevented the aircraft of the governor from leaving Akure Airport in Ondo State shortly after the governor and his aides returned from the burial of late deputy governor of Ekiti State, Olufunmilayo Olayinka.


It was gathered that National Airspace management Authority operatives refused to give clearance to the governor’s jet to take off leaving the governor and his aides stranded.

It could not be confirmed whether the Governor and his aides were later allowed to take off from the airport or not.
