About 12 days to the end of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, the Federal Government, Monday, insisted that the national carrier, Nigeria Air will fly before May 29.
The Federal Government has also approved an online university and 36 other private universities, just as the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu has declared that the country needs more universities.
Fielding questions on the possibility of Nigeria Air becoming operational before May 29 when the administration of President Buhari will come to an end, the Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika emphatically said that the national carrier will fly before the exit of the government.
He simply said, “Yes, we are on course, we’re on course, and by the grace of God before President Buhari leaves office, it will fly. We are on course, we are on course, and before May 29, it will fly.”
The Minister also said the federal government approved N3,197,127,22.72 for the procurement and installation of Taxi Waylights and Photometric Patterns in three airports and some other equipment all over the country.
