There are a lot of things that Nigerians would have to live with, with most of them being things that give them pain as a people. One of such things that would be pointed to by Nigerians as a source of pain and grief is the failure of the current administration to deliver on the proposed national carrier for the country, which was dubbed "Nigeria Air"!
At the Farnborough Air Show in the United Kingdom and in July of 2018, the Nigeria government gave the world one of the most exciting news that might have come out of Nigeria, when it announced and unveiled the logo and name of the nation's airline and air carrier, called "Nigeria Air". This was already coming after the government had said in 2017 that it would be investing USD $5million in the investment.
The proposed national carrier was said to commence flight operations in December of 2018, however in what could be a news tsunami, the federal government of Nigeria, on September 19th, 2018, announced the suspension of the yet to commence Nigeria Air, barely two months after its proposal.
Two solid years after the APC-led government, under President Buhari's administration pulled off what could be a political stunt with the whole Nigeria Air brouhaha, Nigerians and the world are still waiting to board their first flight aboard the nation's national carrier.
Would this be a typical case of a baby whose birthday was celebrated before she was even conceived, only for it to turn out to be a miscarriage, confirming the folly of noise over diligent preparation. There are so much mess that Nigerians have suffered in the hands of politicians and their praise-singers. Do you have a story about the national failures that you have experienced as a Nigerian?
