“Nigerian workers generally we hope for better days ahead, for an air transport worker safer sky is what we always ask for.
“We demand for our own national carrier, if is not national carrier
we can have a flag carrier but national carrier will be our proud.
“National carrier will give us more opportunities for job creation and boost our foreign inflow as per investment.
“Foreign reserve will also be enhanced with our national carrier or flag carrier whichever way we want to see it. We also wish to be one of the safer skies in the world.’’
He said an audit of the aviation sector had been concluded and hoped that the sector would do better.
According to him, with the experienced hand as minister of transportation and minister of state on aviation, the transport sector will be improved upon.
