The Shameful Sense of Integrity From Nigeria

Nigeria Air

This kind of model of ownership is only found in Nigeria!
Govt owns 5% but bears all the financial burdens! $300m!
And you wonder why nothing works in this country.

*Matters Arising*

*Air Nigeria/Nigeria Air*

- Who are the owners of the *95%* equity?

- Why is the ownership shrouded in secrecy?

- Why is *5%* equity holder funding the business?

- Where are these fundings *$8m, $300m coming from? Budget? Borrowing*?

- Are the aircrafts under lease agreement? *If yes, for how many years*?

- If it's private investment, why would a *5%* equity holder determine the *name, logo and other trademarks* of the airline?

- Since it's private sector driven, why not adopt any of the existing airlines in Nigeria as the National carrier?

- Are there sinister motives? Sure!  Time shall tell.
