The Minister of State, Aviation, Mr Hadi Sirika said that the Federal Government will soon appoint the Transition Adviser that will develop the process for the establishment of a new national carrier.

Sirika said this while addressing Aviation Stakeholders Forum in Abuja on Monday. According to him, the government will establish a national carrier that will be private sector driven.

He also said that the government would also establish Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility in the country, adding that the national carrier would serve as the base for such MRO. The minister added that the government would create an enabling environment for the setting up of a world class MRO facility that would attract clientele from all over the world, especially Africa.

He said the MRO will further be encouraged to start the manufacturing of airplane spare parts with intent to go into manufacturing in the long term.

Sirika said that Nigeria had the capacity to become a hub in the African region, pointing out that if Ethiopia and Brazil could manufacture airplane parts, Nigeria could do it effectively.
