The political disagreement between Nigeria’s president Goodluck Jonathan and Rivers State governor Rotimi Amaechi took a new dimension today as aviation agencies prevented the aircraft of the governor from leaving Akure Airport in Ondo State shortly after the governor and his aides returned from the burial of late deputy governor of Ekiti State, Olufunmilayo Olayinka.

SaharaReporters learnt that National Airspace management Authority operatives refused to give clearance to the governor’s jet to take off leaving the governor and his aides stranded.
