Nigeria Air Still On Road Map — Sirika

The Minister of Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika has said
the proposed national carrier, Nigeria Air, is still
on the aviation roadmap and will be implemented.
Sirika spoke on Wednesday at the Ministry of
Aviation when he was being received by the staff
and unions in the aviation sector, who had
thronged out to welcome the returnee minister.
“Nigeria Air is still on the road map. So, we need
your support. For one aeroplane that comes into
the country means 300 jobs. More than that is
the catalyst for the economic growth of our
country. It also adds to our gross domestic
product,” he said.
He also said he will pursue other growth areas of
the ministry. “What we have done is that we have
raised the aviation contribution to GDP from 0.4
to 0.6. I believe that in the coming year, we will
get to 1 percent at least,” he said.
“I do believe that the aviation has a lot for
Nigerians, it connects people, countries,
continents, markets and be that catalyst that is
missing to rejuvenate our economy. 200 million
people in the centre of Africa is a huge
advantage,” he noted.
According to him, now that he is back, he will still
continue to work together with the staff and the
unions in harmony. “If there is need, we will re-
tweak what we have done before to make it
better in the interest of Nigeria and the aviation
industry,” he assured.
“Nigerians should know that, we drew a road map
and we will follow the road map. We will continue
with it and if need be, we will tweak it so that it
will serve the industry better and be pro-people”
he said.
