can president own private jet south africa

Sept 16, 2014 –  CAN President Ayo Oritsejafor Owner Of Private Jet Seized Witha $9.3M In South Africa

Private Jet Used To Smuggle 9.3 Million Dollars Out Of Nigeria Owned By Ayo Oritsejafor

The private jet that got seized last week in South Africa with a stack of $9.3 million is owned by Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN’s President, Mr Ayo Oritsejafor.

According to Nigeria’s Aviation Ministry, the private jet was leased to another party, meaning that Ayo Oritsejafor had no control on what the aircraft is used for.

Mr. Oritsejafor’s church also confirmed the ownership in a separate statement Tuesday. That the pastor has a “residual interest” in Eagle Air, a company that manages the aircraft.

“On behalf of Pastor Oritsejafor, we can confirm that although he holds an interest in Eagle Air, the aircraft in question is not operated by Pastor Oritsejafor,” the statement by The Word of Life Bible Church said.

The aircraft was leased to, and is operated by Green Coast Produce Limited since August 2, the statement added.

Two Nigerians and an Israeli citizen were nabbed last week at an airport in Johannesburg with 9.3 million dollars. During interrogation, the trio said the money was meant to buy weapons.

Why do they have to use CAN President’s private jet to buy weapons without his knowledge, don’t Nigeria have official jet.. Yeye dey smell.

    Nigerian force democracy of the last sixteen years that has brought so much hardship and setbacks to millions of suffering Nigerian people, there is no doubt that, it has brought fortune, wealth, worldly gifts, and many private jets to some popular preachers while millions of our people are living in abject poverty with no hope of a better tomorrow. It is a pity that CAN has become a political machine that can be bought by the highest bidder among our criminal politicians. Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) was supposed to be a light to our paths as Nigerians and give spiritual advices or directions to both the Christians and the Muslims for peace and progress of all. No one in Nigerian political setting respect CAN anymore because it has deviates from its core values of serving the interests of all Nigerian citizens as recorded in the past. No wonder, the Bible says, ” judgement will begin in the church.”

    It is important to note that I have no issue with a pastors owning or flying private jets as long as the money does not come from the looted or stolen money by our criminal politicians. Any pastor who associate himself/herself with these current Nigerian politicians for monetary gains should know that there is God Almighty who dwell in Heaven. When a pastor buy himself or herself private jets through his hard work, dedication and legitimate business venture, I strongly support that because that is the rewards of their labor.

    Whatever anyone (pastors, Imans, Obas, Emirs) does in darkness is evil.Anyone that is involved in this criminal act of money laundering not over $9.3 millions should be investigated, exposed, and if found guilty be prosecuted. I can guarantee Nigerian people that this case will go down without any outcome or judgement just like thousands of other serious cases of criminal behaviors during president Jonathan presidency. Money, fame, comfort, and pleasures are the reasons why the gospel of our Lord Jesus is slowing down in our nation today. I also want to say that in Nigeria today, there are so many pastors that are true servant of God Almighty and count all worldly stuffs vanity.

    This shows that the two religions(lslam&Christianity) are clean but majority of the people practising them, all over the world, are stinkingly dirty.

    The truth is slowly coming out. God will expose all those behind the terrorism in Nigeria. This scandal in which Oritsejafor is involved is a good pointer.
    I believed if this has been linked to a Muslim Chief Imam, everybody would have concluded he’s sponsoring BH.
    One thing that I hate about Nigerians is that they don’t care what someone does, even if they caught gun in this man called Ayo, some people will still be defending him. According to the news release by the supporters of this man, they mentioned that he has a stake in that company. This is purely order from above to central bank if a full n truth investigation will be conducted. Today $39b lost, tomorrow 50 b naira now n now is $9.3m. I trust middle easterners, the Aso Rock will be dust by now.
    Let wait and see what there excuse will be this time around.

    Seems some of you just read headlines and don’t read the content. The jet belongs to him for commercial purpose but it wasn’t stated that he was involved in the money laundering. When you are into transportation business do you know who and what they use your vehicles to transport especially when you are not the one managing the business. Please be objective here and don’t be sentimental. Comment based on what you have read and let’s all wait for the outcome of the investigation. Injustice or not all I know is that God is the greatest judge and He will judge everyone accordingly no matter who you are. God bless Nigeria.

      Please stop giving excuses. Clearly, he’s a suspect in a country where justice system is sound. It doesnt mean he’s guilty. But if he was a Chief Imam, 2 muslim men and 1 Arab man, you wont be giving excuses like this. Mr. Ayo is right now, at the stage of this case, a suspected fraudster, money launderer and suspected sponsor of terrorism. Key word “SUSPECT”.

    What amazes me about some unprincipled people is, they will just wake up one day as pronounce themselves as men of God. Trust me, if you give this kind of money to some Pastors and ask them to deny Jesus publicly, they will do it and come back to tell their gullible people that it is Devil at work. Let’s be candid among ourselves there is no man of God most if these dooms day Pastors are business men they were only interested in making money. If they are truly men God, how many times have they visited Jonathan to discuss about the progress of this Country? How many of them under CAN visited GEJ office to profess their disapproval about what is going on with poor people in Nigeria? Every time they storm Aso Rock, they are there for (Egunje). Real men of God always work for under privilege people.

    This is why Nigeria is where it is today because people believe what they want to believe. The said jet was leased and how possibly will the owner know who is using it when there is a company managing it. A company name has been mentioned, cross check the fact from them & other relevant authorities in the industry before jumping to conclusion. To some of you castigating papa Ayo, do you know at every minute what an apartment belonging to you rented to a thirdparty is being used for on a daily basis?
    We are not saying investigation should not be done, but if you insult a man of God without fact, I do not see you going free.

    God knows everything! Now.if u lease ur vehicle for passengers carriage will the leasee give u account of the luggages carried for every passenger? Let’s b objective rather than castigative on the CAN president.

    God will surely reveal the truth onthis matter, however, will a leasee give account of every luggage of his passenger anytime he transists to his leaser? Food for thought! Castigating statement will not bring out d truth here, but prayer will.
