|Travel / Re: Aero Flights Grounded Nationwide by Vavoom: 5:50am On Mar 14, 2013|
This I heard is one of the reasons they are on strike. They are protesting victimisation of staff,unimproved staff welfare and being made to continually sacrifice while their ogas smile to the bank with fat packages claiming tat the company is in debt.
Nobody can force workers to work hen d work place is uncondusive and unhearting. How can dedicated and experienced workers continue to WORK and baboons beging to chop people sweat and money. While T.F. Worked in Air Nigeeria on N500,000 per month, she lost her job as she earned more salary than professionals only for her to recruited in aero on N1.8m per month btw April- december 2012 and by Jan 2013 thru some magical hoodwinking, her salary rose ro N2.4m per month (N29m p a) with a brand new PRADO JEEP purchased by mgt in her name at N9.7m with N40,000 fuel seed, 3 drums of diesel to power band new gen at N8.8m;. EDFCA - 2.7m pm & mercedes jeep 12m, 80,000 fo fuel - for GM rw- 2.6m pm, prado jeep - N9.7, N40,000 for fuel all these in a coy claimed is going tru hard times. Is AMCON aware of all these? If yes did did AMCON inject Nigeria tax payers money in aero for some thieving mgt to steal and siphon? If no, what does AMCON intend to do to put a stop to these abnormalities? Aero mgt spent N250m on consultancy on aero/amcon negotiation. Tope is from AIR NIGERIA and she is bringing in pple frm air nigeria - we all know how AIR NIGERIA ended in to hands of so called experts? May we not see same in our aero -it is no longer news that plan to outsource virtually all units/depts except themselves. D questn? Who owns GREATER WASHINGTON? REMLOYD TOUR and CAR, SKYBORD ltd?
More info will come out soon!
|Nairaland / General / Commotion As Arik Diverts Passengers To P/harcourt by Vavoom: 9:33am On Jun 27, 2012|
Did anyone hear about this?
Published on June 26, 2012 by pmnews ·
Frightened passengers scurried to exit doors and sent frantic text messages to loved ones on Sunday night as Arik flight W3 272, which was diverted to Port Harcourt from Abuja, remained grounded for more than one hour with more than 100 people onboard at the Port Harcourt airport.
The terrified passengers remained locked inside the plane allegedly because the aircraft’s fuel tank selector had developed a fault.
Experts say that a faulty fuel tank selector may lead to fuel mismanagement and engine failure, as the pilot finds it difficult to determine the exact amount of fuel remaining in the tank. An empty engine can lead to a crash, they say.
The Lagos-bound plane was diverted to Port Harcourt at about 6 p.m. allegedly to pick more passengers only to be grounded there for more than one hour.
“We were travelling to Lagos from Abuja and were delayed for more than two hours at Nnamdi Azikiwe airport. But when we finally took off, instead of coming straight to Lagos, we were informed that the plane would go to Port Harcourt first to pick more passengers.
“Once in Port Harcourt, we did not pick any passenger. We were there for more than an hour and people became worried and wanted to get off the plane after the pilot informed a passenger that the plane had a selector problem,” a passenger onboard told P.M.NEWS.
“Later the pilot said that the aircraft needed 500 litres of aviation fuel and we realised that he did not have enough fuel as well. Passengers moved to the exit door and they refused to let us out. There was commotion as we began sending text messages to our family members, not knowing what was going on or what could happen,” he said.
“They had total disregard for us and did not even feel that after delaying us for more than three hours, they had to apologise or provide an explanation,” he added, echoing the mood and feelings of other trapped passengers.
As the commotion went on and the delay lasted, a passenger who was travelling to Dubai from Lagos missed his flight. He threatened to report the airline to the Senate.
Passengers wondered why the plane was allowed to leave Abuja airport without enough fuel, an oversight that has caused a raft of air disasters around the world.
When contacted, Banji Ola, Arik Air spokesperson said that the claims, corroborated by other passengers, were unfounded.

Very on point.
some valid points have been made but the major issues adversely affecting the airlines should be addressed by the government authorities. Greatest challenges faced by the airlines are caused by financial pressure. Government agencies are all feeding off the airlines. Import duties are choking. The civil aviation authorities take a slice, the federal aviuation authorities take their cut, internal revenue service take their piece. After deductions there is hardly anything left. This financial pressure forces some to cut corners. The onus is on government to address theses issues.This is beside the alleged 'bribes' they have to part with. These obligatory payments cost hundreds of millions of dollars annually. If these issues are not addressed, anything they do (or claim they are doing) will only be a short term solution.
If they kill the aviation sector, the impact on the economy will be enormous.

|Nairaland / General / Court Okays Efcc’s Request To Arraign Hembe, Azubogu by Vavoom: 4:44pm On May 10, 2012|
On May 10, 2012 · In News
Abuja – An Abuja High Court on Thursday granted the request of the EFCC to arraign Herman Hembe, the former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Capital Market and Other Financial Institutions.
Justice Abubakar Umar also granted permission to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arraign the former Vice Chairman of the committee, Chris Azubogu, over corruption charges.
Former Chairman House of Reps committee on Capital Market and other Institution, Hon. Herman Hembe
The EFCC had, through its Counsel, Mr Onjekwu Obe, filed an application for leave to prefer a two-count criminal charge against the duo, under section 185 (d) of the Criminal Procedure Code.
Obe said the application for seeking leave of the court to prefer a criminal charge was made under Section 185(B) of the Criminal Procedure Code.
He said, “I hereby apply for leave to prefer a criminal charge against the above named accused persons.
“Attached herewith are the following documents: a copy of the charge in respect of which leave is sought, and a verifying affidavit.
“Others are names and addresses of the witnesses, statements of the witnesses and that of the two accused persons and other documentary evidences.”
In his ruling, Umar granted the application, and said that from the proof of evidence presented by the EFCC, Hembe and Azubogu are to be arraigned on Thursday, May 17.
“The application to prefer a criminal charge against Hon. Herman Hembe and Hon. Chris Azubogu has merit,” he added.
Obe told newsmen later that with the consent given by the judge, Hembe and Azubogu would now be arraigned on May 17 on a two-count charge, bordering on misappropriation of public funds.
He said that the EFCC investigations revealed that Hembe and Azubogu were the two key actors in the N44 million fraud allegation rocking the House of Representatives Committee on Capital Market and Other Institutions.
The EFCC counsel added that investigations also revealed that the two had confessed that they did not attend the workshop for which they collected money from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
He also said that investigations further revealed that Hembe and Azubogu collected Estacode from SEC to attend a capacity building workshop in the Dominican Republic but never did.
Their confession, the counsel said, came on the day the EFCC launched a probe into the N30 million hotel bill allegedly incurred by SEC’s Director-General, Ms Arunma Oteh.
“EFCC has enough evidence to present to court and is ready to begin its case,’’ the counsel said. (NAN)
|Nairaland / General / Auto Firms Threaten To Withdraw Palliatives Buses Over Huge Debt? by Vavoom: 10:46am On May 10, 2012|
VANGUARD May 9, 2012 · In News
BY THEODORE OPARA
LAGOS – The Federal Government’s inability to pay suppliers of the 2,500 high capacity buses it ordered as a palliative measure to cushion the effect of the January increment in fuel pump price may soon cause untold hardship for commuters nationwide as the automobile companies have threatened to withdraw their vehicles from the operators of the government mass assisted scheme.
Six automobile companies including National Truck Manufacturers, (NTM); Tata Motors, VON Automobiles (Ashok Leyland); ANAMMCO (Mercedes) Globe Motors (Hyundai and Toyota) and Elizade Motors (Toyota) were contracted by the government to supply the high capacity vehicles valued at over N15 billion through a letter by the Urban Development Bank on January 8, 2012.
But five months after, the automobile company were yet to be paid for the first batch of the supply of 1250 units of buses valued at N8.9 billion, a development which has necessitated the suppliers to threaten to withdraw all the buses pending when the government shall pay.
A source told Vanguard, that the suppliers had perfected plans to retrieve the vehicle from operators of the government mass assisted scheme soon to recover the huge debt.
According to the source, the suppliers planned to withdraw the vehicles and park them in the bank warehouses pending the payment by the government.
It further stated that the next batch of supply of 1250 units has been put on hold as a result of the huge debt.
He said: “As I speak with you now, we are groaning under high bank interest rate and may close shops as a result of government’s refusal to pay the debt. We have discontinued further supply of the remaining 1250 units and may consider the option of suing the government to recover our money.
“When government invited us to supply the buses they gave us only two days to do so and we borrowed at a very high bank interest rate thinking that the government would live up to its promise to pay in good time. But five months down the line, the ministries of Finance and Investment are yet to contact us.”

|Politics / Re: Pictures Of Lagos Before Crude Oil And Independence by Vavoom: 2:51pm On May 04, 2012|
This is very nice, i can put a picture to some of the descriptions of parents give. i agree that it's the opportunities that Lagos avails that have led to the developments and problems it now faces due to the population explosion. But this does not give anyone the right to treat Lagos like no man's land. Indigene or migrant (from any tribe), if you live in a place, you should respect the simple basic rules of living. Keep LAGOS clean.

Not at this time, thanks. Beats me though why you have different phone numbers posted....lol!
|Romance / Re: I Am A Single Mum. Can I Still Find True Love? by Vavoom: 9:42am On Apr 10, 2012|
i'm a single parent and my child's father is an ibo man who was raised in a polygamous home. I have raised my child alone with no contribution from him or his family. he left when we were planning our wedding over a silly arguement. I was employed and still am, financially stable by the grace of GOD and i supported him as anyone would a friend and future husband. My child is 3 now. He didn't have a stable income at that time, he got one that would have paid him 3-4 times my salary when we knew there was a baby on the way. All this i attribute to the mercy of God through prayers. I was 4months pregnant when we left me after barely a month in his new job. He has lost it all now, back to square one and still has not learnt anything about life. My son and i are doing well with the support of my family. He's approaching 40......Bottomline is this, irresponsiblity of a man is not defined by tribe. There are irresponsible people all around us cutting across religion, tribe, social background and upbringing.True love is what matters, God's love......what we sow we reap.
@Poster...concentrate on the gift of God that has been committed into your hands. You are a custodian, be selfless and God will bring good your way.
