Hadi Sirika, the minister of state for aviation, says the federal government has started making plans to revisit the suspended national carrier project.

Speaking on Monday when he appeared before the senate committee on aviation in Abuja to defend the ministry’s budget, Sirika promised that the project would be delivered soon.

He said that the ministry only suspended the project to put adequate measures in place, promising that the project would be delivered soon.

He said the project, which was President Muhammadu Buhari’s brainchild would not be allowed to die.

“We have to suspend the earlier plans for the national carrier for strategic reasons. The move was not killed,” he said.

“Provisions have to be made to continue to fund activities of advisers and so on, to ensure that it is delivered.
