In order to make indigenous airlines viable, the Federal Government on Tuesday announced that it had commenced moves that would compel any public servant travelling on a ticket bought with public funds to travel on a Nigerian carrier.

According to the Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, the government is making moves to have the National Assembly pass a ‘Fly Nigeria Act’ in order to achieve this target.
The minister also declared that it was false to state that Nigeria Air lacked a domain name, adding that those who wanted to steal the airline’s domain name would not get a kobo from the Federal Government.

In his response to social media questions, which was made available to Punch correspondent in Abuja on Tuesday, the minister said,
“As part of efforts to make airlines viable in Nigeria, the ministry is making moves to have the National Assembly pass a fly Nigeria Act.

“This Act will require that anybody travelling on a ticket bought with public funds must travel on a Nigerian carrier unless the route is not served by a Nigerian carrier. However, with your private funds, you can do as you like. Many countries, including America, have such Acts.”

what we need is a consistent policy, consistent improvement, layers upon layers of improvement, each layer will depend on the other layers below, we don't need erratic, inconsistent, unstable and fire brigade approach.
You wake up today, a policy is implemented, you wake up another day, it has been discarded, you wake up again, it has been reimplemented, that is confusion and noise.
