The Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Air Peace, Allen Onyema, has appealed to the President, Bola Tinubu to dissolve Nigeria Air, the national carrier unveiled a few days before the end of the previous administration.

Onyema, who described “moribund” the Nigeria Air project launched by former Aviation Minister, Sen Hadi Sirika, said the country should rather invest in a flag bearer airline than a national carrier.

He revealed this while on Wednesday, as he criticized the shareholding structure of the airline, saying that it favours Ethiopia.

He argued that Nigeria is contributing the financial investment for the airline, while Ethiopia is set to earn 49% of the venture without actually putting any money into it.
