The Hawker 800XP aircraft, identified as 5N-AMM and involved in the crash in Ibadan with the Minister of Power onboard, is operating illegally in Nigeria with the awareness and involvement of the NCAA.

This specific aircraft, along with others operated by Flints Aero Service, holds a Permit for Non-Commercial Flights (PNCF) but is being used for commercial charter flights, evading the more stringent regulations required for commercial Air Operator Certificates (AOC). This manipulation allows them to avoid fees and more rigorous safety and maintenance standards. Additionally, senior NCAA personnel are allegedly benefiting from the revenue generated by these illicit operations.

The recent near-fatal accident involving a government minister aboard an unauthorized commercial flight highlights the dangerous consequences of this illegal activity and the negligence of regulatory authorities. The desire for profit at the expense of safety and legality within Nigeria's elite class raises concerns about the primitive and self-serving manner in which the country is run, potentially posing risks not just for the public but also for the elite themselves.
