Mr Aboki:


The Pilot called out 'Prepare for landing' at 4:50. We circled until he called out again twice apologizing.

Finally, he calls out to say; We have been bumped up and given 'priority' landing.

Lets not forget that flights had been delayed to Port-Harcourt all day because of this funeral o. The flight I flew on was actually scheduled for 1.30. It left by 4. I was on the 3pm Arik and my flight was already late by 1 hour. I had to beg to be put on the 1.30 flight.


We don hear, you enter plane, nobody doubt say you never enter plane before but no be gej been dey control towers . We no need u for the fresh air team . Try pac,opc, or whatever grin

Mr Aboki:



Ichie.. Mba o!! grin

Heres my complaint sir;

1. Port Harcourt has two Airfields. Omagwa (Commercial) and NAF Base Military. Since the President knew that his Mother-in-laws burial would attract the usual flies that follows him about, he should have commandeered the Airforce Base and allow the regular scheduled flights for Omagwa to continue undisturbed. Lets not forget that when you halt or disrupt air travel like they did, it costs the State and the COuntry money somewhere, somehow. Whilst in the Air, I counted atleast 3 small Jets that flew by underneath us. I don't think it is wise to risk the safety of Thousands for the comfort of tens. (I hope you can understand)

2. Why did it take the death of the Foster Mother in Law of the President for that ELeme road to be fixed?! Just incase you do not understand the importance of Eleme road, let me explain it to you. Eleme ROad houses the following high priority National interests;

- Eleme Petrochemical Refinery
- National Fertilizer company
- Access to Onne Free Trade Port
- Access to Onne Port
- A lot of Oil & Gas Fabrication Companies and yards
- Its one of the entry/exit points from port Harcourt.

This road is so important to Rivers State and Nigeria that it a surprise that it as left in such abject decay. The traffic on that road everyday can drive you mad. But what it took to fix that road was the death of the '1st mother-in-law'. I'm sorry but if nobody sees a problem with that, I do. Or shoud we wait for Jonathans Mother to die for the East-West rad that leads from Port-Harcourt to Bayelsa to be fully fixed?!


You know that I have been a die-hard Jonathan supporter (only shifting sides when it involves Amaechi).

I voted for Jonathan and was going to vote for him again. But beyond my tribal and ethnic sentiments, I don't think I would be doing Jonathan any good if I don't call his fuckups out.

Ifu ife di njo, lets say it.

If that Plane had dropped out of the sky as a result of this VIP priority access crap, Threads would be here on Nairaland floating around speculating what went wrong with Stella Oduah and NCAA taking the blame, ut we te passengers would be 6 feet underground (if we are lucky) and our stories would never be heard. I reminded you that DANA Air was kept in a holding Pattern that resulted in the death of over 150 people because we had 1 VIP passenger flying off.. grin

Mba nu, oburo otus ka anyi kwesili I na ebi na obodo a.
If I start to type about that onne road I would be in tears before I finish. For many many months people have toiled on that road in fact if it's Wednesday you work in onne and you dey office by 5 pm and you intend to take you and your vehicle home that day na midnight things.
The irony is that it is a federal road and I remember once it was so bad that a company near that akpajo junction on the road had to fill the gullies with Hardcore, Nna ehn they entered big yawa with ferma - their crime was that they were 'spoiling' a federal road.
If I no join politics ehn..........

D So-called VIPs following u up & down 2day didn't stand in d Hot Sun from 7am-5pm in 2011 to vote you in! We did!

My guy yu don't stay in PH so yu don't kno hw de traffic here wit us is.

There are about 3 roads to de PH airport and there is no traffic around de airport. So even wit de president entourage, peeps still use de roads.

Now talking of Airforce Base, that road wud hv been no go area for like hrs.
That road even wit out de president coming is always tite. Ask de road users.

Re: My Experience In Port-harcourt Airspace & Airport Today by Nobody: 3:00pm On Nov 02, 2013
I agree with ohibenemma. GEJ should have used the Airforce base in Port Harcourt, instead of inconveniencing the commercial flights.
In the US, the President only lands at a civilian airport if that particular city doesn't have an airbase/Airforce base. Moreover, when the US Airforce one lands in a civilian airport, the airspace around that airport is closed for ONLY 15 mins. Once the plane lands, flight activities resume at the airport.

If i may asked, are you ready for that second coming?
The second coming won't only be for the President or what he does, but for all of us.

In fairness, work had started generally on the East- west road a long time ago with significant progress achieved. But the Eleme part had not been touched. The road there was still bad. That entire road is being constructed by RCC and I know it like the back of my hand. But the work picked up 'extra-ordinary pace' around Petro chemical area which leads into Okrika just for this funeral. They even took it as far as Eleme junction.

Okrika can only be accessed by road from Eleme express road. The only other access is by water from the part of Okrika that sits on Port-Harcourt mainland (Abuloma).

Which East - West Road are you talking about? I stopped flying for some reasons known to all, so don't tell me about EAST - west road. Just less than 2% of the that road is completed.

I fit tear shirt fight you for that road matter.

The Port Harcourt - Akwa Ibom axis of East-West road na ehn I dey talk about o!! The Port-Harourt - Benin side na another matter. But I posted a picture of my Speedometer here on Nairaland showing 200km/hr. That speed was done on this axis of east west road. The road is about 80% complete on the Port - Harcourt Akwa Ibom side. Infact, immediately you cross Eleme Petrochemical junction, you hit super good road from Nonwa till you exit Port-Harcourt into Akwa Ibom. ANd even after crossing into Akwa Ibom, the road is good till one turn off that takes you to Uyo.

I so believe that road that I left Port-Hacourt for Uyo by 6:40p and arrived Uyo before 8.

What is busy in planes being selfishly declayed because the President and/or his wife is in the airport? Is any of our airports as busy as JFK airport, New York or Heathrow, London, where planes land almost every minute.
Is any of your airport as big as JFK or Heathrow?

I think Naptu2's insight above takes care of the presidents part of your comment.

Mr. Aboki until now was an ardent follower of "fresh air" because his life was put on d line by his oga. All along most nigerians lives have been put on d line by his oga, but he saw nothing wrong because he was not directly involved. Dat is hw it is pple. Wat goes around, comes around. Until insincere nigerians mother is killed by his paymaster, he wud not repent. Until foolish akpa ife's father is killed by dia paymaster, he will remain foolish. For sure wat goes around comes around

Well! It wasn't the fact that I was kept in the air circling for 45 mins despite the recent issues we have been experiencing in the Aviation sector in Nigeria that bothered me per se, it was the fact that it took the funeral of the Presidents Mother-in-law for Eleme/Onne road that is a very important road to not just only Rivers State but Nigeria as a whole to be finally fixed.

I have been kept in the Air before in Nigeria. I remember being kept in the air way back when Virgin Nigeria was still our National carrier in Lagos for about 30mins in bad weather. I didn't like the fact that an entire city would be taken hostage for the funeral of the Presidents mother in law, but hey its expected. But that Eleme road matter was really bad. You do not want to know what that road was like and that is a Federal road.
