Written by Kayode Sanni on August 31, 2022
Airline Operators of Nigeria AON has said not all operators owe government agencies.
AON Vice President, ALLEN ONYEMA in a statement said that owing government agencies does not translate to fraud, noting that every airline in the world owes debts which are settled as their operations go on.
You would recall that the Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, MUSA NUHU, had on Tuesday, read out a riot act to local airline operators in the country over 19-billion naira and 7.6 million dollars debts, noting that the operators refused to pay despite receiving the money from customers.
ONYEMA however noted that while it is true that some of its members have bad debts, not all members owe such debts.
