Balami sells off aircraft hanger, backs Obi


Former Arewa youth president Comrade Isaac Balami has thrown his weight behind the presidential ambition of Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi.

The aviation expert said he was backing Obi for the sake of balance and equity.

Balami, who mobilised for the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, explained this in a statement tagged “My critical junction” on Tuesday.

The former spokesperson of the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers said: “There comes a junction, … a critical junction, in the life of everyone when the sternest of decisions become unavoidably compelling and incontrovertible! This is the point in time when men choose the critical right and stick to it no matter the cost.

“As a foremost youth, a leading light amongst my peers, and a significant actor in one of Nigeria’s most respectable industries and economic sectors, I have to this day exhibited the highest and most profound regard for the careful balance by which our society has operated.

“I am full of respect for our founding fathers and the national establishment of this country that they have so painstakingly engineered over the decades: I grew up embracing the singular maxim: Nigeria’s UNITY is non-negotiable!

’I found solace in this saying so much that, as I yearned to contribute my meagre quota to national development, I would remain on solid grounds and weather every storm and tide of change in the most humane and understandable ways.”

The erstwhile Chairman/CEO, 7 STAR Hangar/Airlines announced he has sacrificed his entire investment by selling his aircraft hanger to join in rescuing Nigeria.

He stressed ‘’I have sold my majority stake in my aircraft hangar as well as my airline, to join my fellow Nigerians in the Obidient movement, just so I can more dedicatedly fight this struggle to rescue the soul of this great nation. This is my sacrifice! What is yours?”
