Aero Contractors denies diversion of $3m
The management of Nigerian foremost airline, Aero Contractors, has described as misleading reports of diversion of the sum of $3 million from the company’s coffer.
The airline, which last week announced the temporary suspension of its scheduled flight operations, told journalists in Lagos that it is unaware of such transactions as alleged by one Femi Adeniji.
“Aero Contractors, and the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON), is totally unaware of the diversion of any $3million belonging to both or either organisation meant for the acquisition of a Bombardier aircraft for Aero Contractors Limited, talk less of a refund by Bombardier, a reputable aircraft manufacturer still in existence.”
“In the said… publication, one Femi Adeniji who claimed to be an Engineer and CEO of NIGAME Aircraft Consultancy Incorporation in faraway Florida, United States of America made the spurious claim in an interview with the newspaper. The allegations he spewed in the interview is one of those desperate but futile efforts to malign Aero Contractors and AMCON that is saddled with the difficult national assignment of recovering debts from stubborn, and recalcitrant obligors.” the company said.
