Written by News Room on March 7, 2022
The Federal Government has issued the request for proposal to intending private investors on National Carrier.
In a statement shared on the social media handle of the Aviation Ministry on Monday, the Federal Government said the move is part of efforts towards diversification of the economy and to promote economic growth.
This comes less than one week after the minister of aviation, Hadi Sirika announced that the Federal Government will issue requests-for-proposal for the establishment of Nigeria Air.
Sirika while making the announcement said because the government intends to own only five percent of the airline shares, it is going to go ahead with the AOC (Air Operator Certificate), which had already commenced.
He also said the Federal government will give the prospective investors some weeks to respond to the request, then an announcement will be made concerning the winning bidder.
