- The PDP has lambasted the Muhammadu Buhari's administration for unveiling the Nigeria Air
- The PDP accused the federal government of trying to deceive Nigerians with the national carrier project
- The party also claimed the project is non-existent and accused the federal government of merely unveiling a logo
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday, July 20, accused the federal government of unveiling a non-existent national carrier in a desperate effort to deceive Nigerians now that election is around the corner.
The Punch reports that the national publicity secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, that it was not funny that the federal government under President Muhammadu Buhari was merely unveiling logos and drawings of an airplane and imaginary routes, without a proper project.
He said: “Is it not comical that while other nations are unveiling and rolling out real planes, the Buhari administration, in a most hilarious manner, is ‘unveiling’ drawings of an airplane, name, logo and imaginary routes of a nonexistent fleet, as our national carrier, in faraway London?
“What President Buhari and his handlers fail to understand is that Nigerians can see through their fraud and lies.
“Apart from drawings of airplanes, there are no structures to indicate that a new airline, billed to commence operation in December this year, is being set up; there are no offices, no recruitment of personnel and no form of ground activity anywhere in the country."

NAIJ.com earlier reported that the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for the unveiling of the logo and the planned take-off of Nigeria Air in December.
BMO praised the efforts of the president and his team, stressing that the present administration has gone beyond completing abandoned projects to resurrecting dead projects.
In a statement sent to journalists on Wednesday, July 18, the group noted that it was gratifying that the Nigeria Airways killed by the PDP government in 2003 was being brought back to life by Buhari 15 years after.
