Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State has reacted to the suspension of the national carrier project, Nigeria Air by the federal government. Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, on Wednesday made the disclosure while addressing newsmen.
According to Sirika, the decision to suspend the procurement of Nigeria Air, was taken at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting. Reacting, Tambuwal in a post on his Twitter page, queried the Buhari-led government for wasting money worth N1.5bn belonging to tax payers on the suspended Nigeria Air.
According to him, the National carrier failed due to poor planning. Tambuwal wrote, “N1.5bn of taxpayers money wasted on a poorly planned Nigeria Air now suspended. “Our administration will properly plan and execute any project we undertake so as to stop wastage of scarce resources.
“A Greater Nigeria is possible with the right people at the helm. The future is now.”
