The House of Representatives has exposed what it claims to be a fraudulent scheme surrounding the purported launch of Nigeria Air.
The project, initiated during the end of the previous administration under former President Muhammadu Buhari, has come under intense scrutiny after major stakeholders, including Ethiopian Airlines, denied any knowledge of the launch.
The House Committee on Aviation, headed by Chairman Nnolim Nnaji, has categorically declared the entire Nigeria Air launch as a carefully orchestrated fraud.
Following a series of investigations, the committee uncovered alarming discrepancies that have raised serious doubts about the authenticity of the project.
Nnaji was resolute in his declaration that Nigeria Air was nothing more than a deception.
The Ministry of Aviation attempted to defend itself by claiming that Nigeria Air was merely unveiled and not officially launched.
However, the committee dismissed this explanation as a feeble attempt to divert attention from the mounting evidence of deception.
Nnaji, in a scathing rebuke, accused the ministry of intentionally misleading the lawmakers and the Nigerian public.
Adding fuel to the fire, other stakeholders came forward to confirm the committee’s findings, further shattering the government’s narrative.
These individuals, speaking on the condition of anonymity, highlighted a shocking revelation that a chartered flight can easily be repainted with different colors and inscriptions.
The House of Representatives is not the sole voice labeling the claimed launch of Nigeria Air as a scam; Nigerians themselves have vehemently denounced it as such.
Ever since the purported launch of the airline, public sentiment has been overwhelmingly skeptical, with many Nigerians denouncing it as an outright scam.
Citizens have expressed their concerns and demand a thorough investigation into the matter, as suspicions continue to mount regarding the legitimacy of the project.
During an interview with Arise Tv on May 29, 2023, Chike Ogeah, the Former Commissioner for Information, Delta State, made a startling revelation regarding the controversial Nigeria Air project.
Ogeah asserted that the introduction of a foreign registered aircraft under the guise of Nigeria Air constituted a direct violation of Nigerian law.
