The House of Representatives has called the reported inauguration of Nigeria Air towards the end of former President Muhammadu Buhari’s government a fraud.
Nnolim Nnaji, Chairman of the House Committee on Aviation, termed Nigeria Air’s debut a fraud as the primary partners in the contract between the Federal Government and Ethiopian Airlines denied knowledge of the launch.
The Ministry of Aviation stated that it had merely been presented and had not yet been launched, which the committee regarded as an attempt to distract legislators’ attention.
Members of the committee were taken aback when NAMA revealed that the plane flying Nigerian flags was on a chartered journey to Nigeria.
Other stakeholders who confirmed the disclosure noted that a chartered flight could be painted in any colour and with any inscription.
