AMCON reportedly announced it was taking over the alleged distressed airline on Thursday, February 9, 2017 but Arik says it would challenge this decision by the government agency.

Omokri, who has remained a staunch critic of the present government, said no airline would survive once taken over by the Nigerian government.

“With what’s been done to Arik, the Nigerian government wants to turn itself to an undertaker for businesses in the country,” he said adding that just as the country chased away international businessman Richard Brason and his V*rgin Atlantic with bad policies, it wants to destroy Arik.
