The House of Representatives Committee on Aviation has asked the government to suspend the establishment of Nigeria Air.
The legislator, on Tuesday, described the launch of Nigeria Air has a fraud.
Recall that Nigeria Air was launched at the twilight of the administration of former President, Muhammadu Buhari.
However, the Chairman of the House Committee on Aviation, Nnolim Nnaji, poked holes in the launch of Nigeria Air after the major stakeholders in the deal between the Federal Government and Ethiopian Airlines denied knowledge of the launch.
Nigeria Air was only unveiled and not launched, the Ministry of Aviation claimed, which the committee dismissed as an attempt to divert the lawmakers’ attention.
Members of the committee were shocked when NAMA disclosed that the aircraft bearing Nigerian colours was on a chartered flight to Nigeria.
Other stakeholders who confirmed the disclosure noted that a chartered flight could be painted in any colour and with any inscriptions.
