CrossRiverWatch investigation has revealed that the controversial airplane belonging to the Cross River State Government is still undergoing some refurbishment at the Aero Contractors hanger at the Murtala Mohammed Airport in Lagos.

CrossRiverWatch investigators were granted rare access into the aircraft to inspect the level of work.

The 70 seater Dash 8-Q200 series aircraft with registration number 5N GRS (Aircraft) which was purchased by the Liyel Imoke administration from the Rivers State government since 2013 has remained under repairs, leaving Cross Riverians to speculate on the fate of the craft.

The management of Aero Contractors, in efforts to douse uncomplimentary media reports about the aircraft wrote a statement on the 1st of June, 2015 apologizing to former governor Imoke and the people of Cross River state for the delay in the repair work and promised that the refurbishment will be completed and the aircraft will be delivered to the state not later than June 30th, 2015.

It’s over a month since that deadline elapsed and the craft has not been delivered despite the fact that maintenance charges have been fully paid for by the Cross River State government since July 2013, according to the statement by Aero, a development that prompted our investigation.

Technicians working on the aircraft told our investigators that “Aero engineers are working tirelessly to put it in good shape, all the spare parts needed to fix the air craft are from Istanbul, Turkey which is the best in production of bombardier plane”.
