A Former Nigerian Minister, Dr Oby Ezekwesili has said the National carrier project is a missed placed priority.
The former minister who has come under serious backlash for saying that the project will fail.
Ezekwesili says she hoped that the federal government would have advised itself on embarking on the project she says will fail “for the sake of Nigerians.”
She said this via her twitter handle saying as she wrote:
Dr Ezekwesili while responding to people who criticised her stance said she maintains that the project is waste of “our scarce national resources.” She added that her stance is not out of bitterness but of patriotism.
Those who mischievously CONFLATE wanting a WASTEFUL Public Project to FAIL as being “wanting Nigeria to fail” can carry on.
Nothing of what we have publicly read on the National Airline Project shows ANYTHING DIFFERENT from the usual ELEPHANT projects of the past in Nigeria.
