The management of Arik Air on Thursday said it would challenge in court the taking over of the airline by the Assets Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON).
Senior Vice President of Arik Air, Ado Sanusi made this disclosure at a joint news conference with the newly appointed receiver manager Oluseye Opasanya, and the airline’s technical consultant, Roy Ilegbodu.
Mr. Sanusi said the airline had been served with a valid court order empowering AMCON to take over the company.
He said; “As responsible citizens, we have obeyed the court order which appointed the Oluseye Opasanya as the receivership manager.
“We will comply but I want to make it clear that we have a right to challenge the court order.
“In the coming days, we will make our position known. It is a court order and we can challenge it and we will challenge it to the highest court of authority,”.
He added that while the legal battle would be on one front, the parties had agreed that Arik Air would continue to run without any disruption.
