Politics How Buhari Chased 14 Airlines From Nigeria – Reno Omokri



Former Special Assistant to immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has stated that no fewer than 14 airlines have packed up since President Muhammadu Buhari assumed power.

Omokri said the move to takeover Arik airline by the federal government would further send the airline into oblivion.

The former presidential aide in series of tweets on Friday called on the Federal Government not to turn itself to an undertaker by torturing businesses.

According to him, AMCOM has not managed previous businesses it took over from their owners and as such, should not take over the management of Arik Airline.

He said, “With what’s been done to Arik, the Nigerian Govt wants to turn itself to an undertaker for businesses in the country.

“Just as we chased @richardbranson and @VirginAtlantic from Nigeria due to bad policies we want to also destroy Arik.

“AMCON took over AeroContractors and look at what happened to that airline! Govt should nurture not torture businesses.

“Arik has been operating under terrible conditions in part due to unreasonable forex policies of the @MBuhari admin.

“Since the @MBuhari admin came on board,14 airlines have left Nigeria. Why are airlines leaving under PMB?.
