Jubilation In Rivers As Lost Aircraft Finally Returns (Photos) by chrisxxx(m): 7:31pm On Sep 27, 2022
There was jubilation in Rivers State on Tuesday when the Legacy 600 aircraft recovered by the Nyesom Wike-led administration finally touched down at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa, Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state.

Rivers women and youths rushed to the airport to entertain people with their cultural displays designed to celebrate the return of the state-owned Legacy 600 Aircraft, which the Governor said was secretly abandoned in Germany by the immediate past administration.

Wike, who was on ground to receive the Legacy 600 aircraft, said that the recovery and eventual return of the lost asset of the state was a reality and not mere politics.

The Governor explained that it took intelligence report for his administration to discover such asset, owned by the Rivers State government.

According to him, the immediate past administration flew the aircraft to far away Germany, without any record of it made available to his administration.

He said: "To the glory of God, the plane is back and Rivers people can see, Nigerians can see, it is not that we are playing politics. All we are saying, we never knew, nobody told us until we got intelligence that we have this asset somewhere."

He recalled that the Legacy 600 Aircraft was purchased by the Dr. Peter Odili's led administration to serve the interest of Rivers people, but was abandoned with the General Atomics Aerotec in Munich, Germany by Chibuike Rotimi Ameachi's administration since 2012.

He said: "What is very important to all of us here today is that when we came into power in 2015, nobody handed over any report or gave us handover note to let us know where such asset of the State was, only for us to hear in 2019 that this asset is somewhere."

Wike said because air transportation was a more technical area, great care was taken to put the Legacy 600 Aircraft into its best form to undertake air travel effectively.

The Governor said that so much money was expended by the State government on the aircraft, money that he said would have been put into other developmental projects if his administration had known of the abandonment early.

He said in fixing the aircraft, certificate of air worthiness, issued by the Nigerian government, was secured for the aircraft to return to Nigeria.

Amaechi don finally vomit am, maybe he didn't know it could be located. That's how they're busy stealing and hiding money everywhere around the globe, but one day just like Abacha the looted funds shall be recovered and the living shall be jail. Buhari will not die but live to return the loots.

This is actually good and commendable but the fanfare is unnecessary. It's not as if the State will become richer overnight or the people will be better off after the recovery

Rivers State hasn't been blessed with intelligent governors....... from odili to ameachi and now wike..... Just wasting the state resources on frivolities...
How will this aircraft purchased by odili and hoarded by ameachi benefit the common man from Rivers

See Nigerians quoting me defending these governors... lol........

You guys slave mentality is on another level. I stand to be corrected, Rivers hasn't been blessed with intelligent governors. A state owing pensioners for over 8 years is celebrating an airplane hoarded by their governor after over 10 years..... Una mumu never do at all.....

And at the end Tinubu ended up claiming he made Buhari president.

Dancing because of air craft. This is clearly politically planned because those people that went and dance at the airport are working for the government. Ordinary rivers state citizens will mot travel to airport to go and dance because of aircraft he might not enter in his life time

Let us see what Wike will do with that Aircraft. Much Ado about a liability. He had to waste money to organise fanfair ontop of a returned liability. Wike and his penchant for public display of pettiness.
Thank God he can no longer manipulate votes. Electronic voting is way to go.

right questions are not being asked.

Who paid hangar fees for the last 10 years?

Who used it during these period?

Who kept it airworthy?

Are we saying there was no one in the whole government who could notice that a whole plane was missing?

If the Wike government could not identify a missing plane for 7 years, how many Hilux and Prados have gone under the radar?

So dumping it by your Lord and personal saviour Amaechi was the right thing to do? If Wike can't find anything to the with it he will take it to the monorail museum of your Amaechi. He will drop it on top it and people will be viewing it as an equal waste. Till tomorrow head to head in Rivers politics Wike will always beat Amaechi. Vote manipulation or not.

You went thru my profile and started giving me likes. grin

Rivers state did not need the aircraft in the first instance. It was bought out of sheer ego tripping. We also needn't bring it back in its almost useless state and then gather mothers, sisters and wives to throw a pageant for a broken-down aircraft.. It is a petty way to waste time, energy and money.


I have alot of reservations about Wike style of governance but I'd let it slide. Let me not be on wrong side of posterity, since we are all Ikwerres.

You always find it convenient to refer to Amaechi anytime I criticise Wike. I didn't tell you I was related to Amaechi.

That aircraft with its present state could be easily leased to any operator. There was a dubious and treacherous intention of dumping it in Germany of all places. If the aircraft is not cost effective to maintain the best thing is to sell it out and not hid it to rot.
When this aircraft was discovered it made headlines. There is nothing bad in publicizing it that it has been returned.
