The latest winner of the Big Brother Naija (BBNajia) reality show, Mercy Eke has told her fans she needs a private jet to hasten her movement.
She made the request in an Instagram video after her flight to Abuja was delayed for three hours. Then Queen of Highlights was planning to visit Abuja and meet her fans for a victory party after emerging as the first female winner of the show.
Flight delays have been a normal occurrence at Nigerian airports, and the issue is yet to be addressed despite criticism from several quarters. This has led to the waste of man-hours and loss of appointment, contracts amongst others.
“Hi guys, I am so tired. I have been in this airport for over three hours. I know you all can’t wait to see me and I can’t wait to see you too. But I think it’s high time we get a private jet, guys. Yea, you guys have to get me a private jet so that I can hasten my movement. We need a private jet…. A PJ guys,” she was heard saying in the video.
