Ayade, Cross River Governor-Elect, Aero On Collision Course Over Cally Air
There are indications that all may not be well with Cally Air, owned by the Cross River State Government over “asset concession”.
Trouble started brewing two after the airline commenced flight operations
It was gathered that Cally Air which is managed by Aero Contractor, the oldest airline in the country has caused dispute between the outgoing governor of Cross River State, Prof. Ben Ayade and the Governor -Elect, Price Bassey Ottu on one hand and Aero Contractors on the other.
AbelNews learnt that while the outgoing Governor is demanding for the embattled airline’s airplane, Boeing 737-300 with the registration number: 5N-BYQ to be brought to Calabar to be unveiled and later “concessioned”, the Governor –Elect on the other hand it was gathered is not comfortable with the arrangement and he is suspecting that there may be some hanky-panky in the whole deal.
AbelNews recalled that Ayade had earlier listed Cally Air and other assets as some of the state’s assets that were penciled down for concessioning .
