Senator representing Imo East senatorial district, Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu, says if aircraft cannot be properly maintained, witchcraft should be used as a means to fly.
According to Thecable, Anyanwu said this on Tuesday while contributing to a debate on the need to minimise air mishaps in the country.
His words: “It is shameful that Nigeria does not have any national carrier. I think every responsible government should look at this issue. If the aircraft cannot be maintained, let’s use witchcraft and start flying.
“That is the truth. Where is our national carrier? The government should look at the airline sector. Foreigners don’t come here (Nigeria) because it is not safe. Government should pay attention to the sector.”
The lawmaker added that the FG may give bailout funds to the airlines to enhance their operations.
