Arik Air the nation’s largest carrier has suspended further operations within the Nigerian airspace indefinitely over what it describes as incessant harassment by officials of the aviation ministry and Federal Airport Authority of Nigerian, FAAN.
The airline will be relocating to Sierra Leone and Niger Republic where it will operate as their local/national carrier. Following this development, the airline has grounded all aircrafts in her fleet leaving air travellers stranded across the nation in the absence of a national career.
What this means is that only AERO CONTRACTOR & IRS airlines are available for commercial air travelers in the whole of Nigeria.
I hope Mr Labaran Maku and the army of journalists undertaking the “Good Governance Tour” in order to verify the much talked about dividends of democracy will make time out of their busy schedule to visit the airport in order to access the level of transformation!
