Obi’s Plane Grounded, Campaign Train Looks For Alternate Arrangements

Supporters of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate and other party leaders were denied access to a campaign jet heading for Ibadan, Oyo State’s capital, on Wednesday.

After learning that the plane had been grounded, Oseloka Obaze, Deputy Director-General and Campaign Manager for the LP Presidential Campaign Organisation, was the first to raise the alarm.

On Wednesday, the former Nigerian diplomat took to his verified Twitter account to announce that the “powers that be” had grounded the “Obi-dent aircraft,” citing “regulatory concerns.”

When contacted, the National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure, confirmed the report.
He said, “We have just finished our rally in Ibadan. It is true that the plane meant to convey our NWC and NEC members for campaign was grounded by the powers that be. But we were not deterred by the plane that was grounded.

“This is what we have been saying about this country. It is not the first time it is happening. They have been using every opportunity to ensure we don’t get to do anything in this country.”

Also, the Head of Media for Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Organisation, Diran Onifade, released a statement to express the PCC’s displeasure at the turn of event.

However, in their response, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority denied the allegations and explained that the plane belonged to a scheduled operator.

It said, “The so-called grounded plane belongs to a scheduled operator i.e. normal commercial flight. The flight crew of the said aircraft returned to the base on their own to check on an issue that developed soon after it took off. This is the normal and right thing to do. What they did is what we termed safety precautionary flight measures. NCAA was not involved in this decision.”

Meanwhile, Obi promised citizens that he would not build on tribalism and religion if elected in 2023 and assured them of his plan to secure the country and unite its citizenry.
