In this video, Nigeria’s Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, lamented “suspicious deals” the Nigerian government, under former minister Hadi Sirka, had with Ethiopian Airlines for a Nigerian national air carrier project— Nigeria Air.

The deal, which was first announced in July 2018, includes tax waivers for five years. This was faulted by Keyamo.

He said: “Now we have looked at all the issues, and it’s before Mr President. But let me just give you one or two snippets because Nigerians are quick to judge.

“In the agreement, you are giving tax waivers to Ethiopian Airlines coming into Nigeria; they ask for tax waivers for five years, and you grant them to come and compete with your local airlines who are paying those heavy taxes, how? You want to create a monopoly?”
