Air Nigeria’s continuing controversies seem to have come to a head.
According to Daily Times: “The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has suspended the operations of Air Nigeria as a result of the strike embarked upon by its engineers and pilots over their remuneration.
“Sam Adurogboye, the NCAA’s spokesman, confirmed the suspension, while responding to enquiries about the current state and performance of the airline.
“The suspension of the operations of Air Nigeria is a routine action that will to enable us (NCAA) to scrutinise the airline before allowing it to start operations again having being on strike for days,” he said, “It is a normal exercise.”
Pilots and engineers of the airline had embarked on the weeklong strike to press for improved conditions of service.
Well, well. Unhappy pilots? Not good.
