Keyamo Announces Suspension Of Nigeria Air, Says Project Fraudulent

Festus Keyamo, the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development has described the “Nigeria Air” initiative, which was introduced by the former President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, as a scam, saying it is still in suspension.

Keyamo made this remark while clarifying that the “national carrier,” meant to be an indigenous initiative and inspire hope among Nigerians, was faulty due to a great deal of secrecy and fraudulent activity.

He said, “It was never Air Nigeria, it was Ethiopian trying to fly our flag. It was 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, must be wholly Nigerian or must be for the full benefit of Nigerians, not that 60 per cent of the profit is given to another country. How does that benefit us? It remains suspended. It remains so.”
