Nigeria’s opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has told President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government to bury the thought of trying to use the ‘unveiling’ of what it described as nonexistent national carrier to deceive Nigerians now that election is around the corner, warning that the alleged smokescreen wont yield anything.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, said this in a statement in Abuja on Friday.
He ridiculed the Buhari Government for unveiling logos and drawings of an airplane and imaginary routes in the name of a national carrier.
Mr. Ologbondiyan regretted that President Buhari and his All Progressives Congress have now resorted to international kite-flying aimed at deceiving unsuspecting Nigerians, having run out of ” fake promises and not having any development project to parade”.
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.”
