Bankruptcy: Aviation unions beg AMCON to rescue airline


The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) and the Air Transport Senior Staff Services Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) have written a save our soul (SOS) letter to the Assess Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON), urging the company to rescue the airline from the brink of bankruptcy allegedly being manipulated by some powerful members of the company board and the airlines management.

The Unions in their letter alleged numerous fraudulent practices and embezzlement orchestrated by the management of Aero, the board of Aero and AMCON representative calling for a forensic audit to be carried out with the intervention of ICPC or the EFCC to look into how tax payers money invested in Aero has been embezzled by a few individuals.

In the letter signed by the unions secretaries, Olayinka Abioye for NUATE and Rotimi Kehinde for ATSSSAN, the airlines workers called on AMCON to investigate its present representative alongside the board members of Aero, alleging that a lot of middle men who just wanted to use Aero as a front to siphon tax payers money from AMCON got into the takeover process of the airline by AMCON.
