The most widely read newspaper in Nigeria
18 June 2021The Federal Government has been pushing airline operators to purchase and deploy brand new aircraft to have better impact on the sector and the Nigerian economy, the Chairman, Air Peace Airlines, Allen Onyema, said on Thursday.Onyema, who doubles as the Vice President of the Airlines Operators of Nigeria, said this at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, as Air Peace received its third Embraer 195-E2 aircraft.
He said the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, had been challenging operators to bring brand new planes due to the economic benefits of such aircraft and the ability to cut operational cost when using them.Onyema said, “He (Sirika) didn’t want Nigeria to be a dumping ground for old planes; not that the old planes are not safe, but at the same time, he has to protect the economy of the nation.
“The amount of money spent on maintaining old planes is huge, as whatever you make you give it to the MROs (maintenance, repair and overhaul firms).”He added, “At that time many of us did not understand it. However, later we started to understand why the government through the minister is pushing that we should purchase brand new planes.” headtopics.com

FG borrowed N1.3tn in four years to subsidise power consumers, firms – World Bank - Punch NewspapersThe Federal Government has borrowed a total of N1.3tn since 2017 to ensure that generation companies and gas suppliers received enough payments to continue generating electricity, the World Bank has said. That's the change you people promised us Scams like this precedes Buhari’s dictatorship, our leaders have been borrowing to coverup their failings. Governors borrow to pay salaries rather than retrench workers. In developed countries, leaders resign in this Nigeria quagmire. Our leaders shamelessly borrowe with pride. This is a fallacy brewed to hoodwink average Nigerians. They should look for another way to cover their kleptomania. Yes, they are stealing for a joke of it
