Very soon, those who maintain private jets will begin to sell them - Oshiomole

Edo state governor, Adams Oshomole says very soon Nigerians who maintain luxurious assets and private jets will begin to sell them. According to him, the corrupt avenues through which these Nigerians have used to acquire the wealth they used to afford these luxuries will be removed by the present administration. He said this while delivering a speech at the University of Port Harcourt yesterday July 3rd.
"Few people (in Nigeria) are taking away so much wealth, while majority of the people are going home with almost nothing. A clear example is when you arrive at the private wing of the airport in Abuja; you will find more than 40 to 50 private jets parked there in one airport alone. The question is what sources do these private jet owners get their wealth from; and which businesses do they run to acquire this luxurious lifestyle.
