NUATE hails inauguration of committee on national carrier
The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) has expressed satisfaction with the federal government over the inauguration of a committee on National Airline for the country.
The federal government had last week constituted a 13-man committee to consult with international partners for the establishment of a national airline for Nigeria.
In an exclusive chat with The Guardian, NUATEs General Secretary, Olayinka Abioye described federal governments gesture as a welcome development but insisted that membership of the committee is not a true representation of all the stakeholders in the industry.
According to him, ‘it is important for us to commend the federal government for taking that bold initiative which did not come to us as a surprise. This is because we have been putting pressure on federal government to work on the national carrier.
