A flight belonging to Nigeria Air has touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.
Daily Trust had reported that the flight which took off from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, was getting set for the journey to Nigeria’s capital city.
Two days ago, Daily Trust had reported how the promise that the national carrier would fly before the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure had not been kept.
Apparently reacting to the report, Hadi Sirika, Minister of Aviation, had said insisted that Nigeria Air would fly before the tenure of Buhari ends.
Daily trust report that, “On the question of Nigeria Air, a Nigeria Air plane will land in Nigeria on Friday in two days as part of the processes to begin operation,” Sirika had stated in an interview with Channels Television. On that day, we will declare that this aircraft, which is painted in the national colours of Nigeria, belongs to Nigeria Air, and we would then go about carrying out the necessary retrofits to bring that aircraft back.
As of the time Sirika granted the interview, sources had informed our correspondent that a plane already painted in the colours of Nigeria Air was to come in the nation from Ethiopian Airlines for a potential test-flight.
