Nigeria Air Project Was Fraudulent, Remains Suspended- Minister

Releated Post

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, Monday described the controversial Nigeria Air unveiled by the Buhari led administration as a fraud.

Keyamo said the project remains suspended.

He said that the ‘national carrier’ that was supposed to be an indigenous project and one that was supposed to spark hope for Nigerians, was flawed with a lot of secrecy and fraudulent activities.

Keyamo made the declaration on Nigeria Air while fielding questions from journalists during the second day of the Ministerial Sectorial update on Monday, May 27, in Abuja.

Keyamo declared that the Nigeria Air remains suspended, adding that it was anti-Nigeria.

He said, “It was never Air Nigeria. It was Ethiopian trying to flag our flag and not Air Nigeria. That is the truth; it was not Nigeria.

“It only printed Air Nigeria. It was an Ethiopian airline trying to fly our flag. If it is so, why not allow our local people to fly our flag? Why bring a foreigner to fly our flag?

“So nobody should deceive you that it is Air Nigeria. Air Nigeria must be indigenous, wholly Nigeria or must be for the full benefit of Nigerians. Not that 60 percent of the profit is given to another country.

“How does that benefit us? It remains suspended. It remains so.”
