3 Investors In Talks With AMCON To Acquire Aero Contractors
Last week, it was the management of Arik Air that was reminding Nigerians that the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria, AMCON has done a good job of reviving the airline, while debunking claims that AMCON was struggling to find a buyer.
But Arik isn’t the only airline taken over and being managed by AMCON. Aero Contractor is also under the corporation, but it appears its job with Aero is coming to an end.
Punch reports that three investors are in talks with the corporation to acquire the airline.
It was gathered that the airline had attracted 19 investors since it was acquired in 2016 and the number had been narrowed down to six and later three.
