Of all countries that my Aviation Team at the World Bank offered expert advisory support to REFORM their Aviation Sector, guess which was least interested?
Yeah, you got that right.
All that Sector has ALWAYS CARED ABOUT are 3 things:
1Transactions
2Transactions
3Transactions.

Here is why it won’t work, – corruption, overregulation, overstaffing, excessive debt, political interference and poor management that SUNK BILLIONS OF DOLLARS of Nigeria’s money invested in similar Business ventures in the past all too common.

Their PLAN for it MUST FAIL to SAVE THE POOR of this country, the COLOSSAL WASTE of LIMITED PUBLIC RESOURCES that should be INVESTED in SECTORS that would help LIFT THE POOR OUT OF POVERTY. FG has NO BUSINESS GOING INTO THE BUSINESS OF AIRLINES. The Evidence is STRONG”.
