The restructuring exercise initiated by the Asset Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON) since its technical takeover of Aero has consumed its first casualty in the person of the Managing Director of the airline, Capt. Akin George. George was asked to step aside in a bid to revamp the airline.
The former Deputy Managing Director, Obaro Ibru has been appointed as the acting managing director/chief executive officer. According to a statement from the airline, the resignation of Capt.
