Amaechi’s Plane: House Considers Prosecuting Caverton Helicopters

The House of Representatives on Thursday stated that it may move for the prosecution of Caverton Helicopters for allegedly misleading the nation’s aviation authorities to the Rivers State government private jet.

Caverton Helicopters, in a swift reaction, last night slammed the House stance on the issue, insisting that it was not under any form of pressure to deny the state government, even as it challenged the state government to show any mandate, contract, correspondence, or any form of payment to Caverton for providing the purported services to them in the last eight months as claimed.

the lower chamber of the National Assembly, while receiving the report of an investigation conducted on the controversy surrounding the Rivers government private jet with the Joint Committee on Justice and Aviation, found fault  in the testimonies of Caverton Helicopters.

The report said inter alia that: “For providing information that led the authorities to wrongly believe that Rivers State Government falsified documents thereby leading to grounding of its aircraft, the Hon. Attorney-General of the Federation  is requested to consider prosecuting Caverton Helicopters under the provisions of S. 36(4) Civil Aviation Act, Cap. C13 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.”
