Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi has disclosed the real reason why the Nigeria Air project have not yet kicked off.
Amaechi said that members of the Federal Executive Council were divided on the running of the proposed national carrier.
Speaking at a valedictory new conference, the Minister said the project has not been forgotten rather, there was a division on whether to carry on his with the Project.
He said “On the national carrier, the cabinet is divided on the issue of modality. There are those who believe that the Federal Government should invest and then we can sell the equity later.
“There are also those who believe that no, and from day one they say let us get investors in and give them the franchise of Nigeria Airways or Air Nigeria or whatever is called.
“That is where we are and that is what held it down. But as for whether it is still in our plan, it is and has not been abandoned.”
