Buhari Orders Aviation Ministry To Expedite Action on New National Carrier

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, August 5, instructed the Ministry of Aviation to fast-track action on the establishment of a new national airline for the country.

The president gave the directive while receiving briefing from officials of the Aviation Ministry, led by the Permanent Secretary, Binta Bello, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Bello, who spoke with State House correspondents after the briefing, said the president was worried about Nigeria not having a national carrier and has given the mandate  for a new one to be established.

She added that the president was briefed on the challenges domestic airlines were facing in spite of Federal Government’s N300 billion intervention fund towards boosting their operations.
