” we cannot continue like this and in a situation where we are not sure, our aviation architecture is up and doing, that we can go to the airport and get a flight, where, we cannnot advise the travelling public and our clients that they can make it to any destination in Nigeria without hazzels and to think of it, the mere announcement by airline operators of Nigeria that they are off the sky on Monday, has sent panic around the globe as Nigerians returning home and those coming to do business in our country, has cancelled their flights to the country.
- Nanta appeals to the Minister of Aviation to rally around support for AON members and to think that we are also in the heat of preparations for 2023 elections when electoral materials and campaign trains, would move from one end of the country to another, calls for serious measures.
