Qatar Airways not preferred bidder for Nigeria Air – FG

THE Ministry of Aviation has dismissed a report that it had selected preferred bidders for the national carrier, Nigeria Air.

Spokesman, James Odaudu, in a statement yesterday said it was false that Qatar Airways had been chosen as the preferred bidder.

“The report, coming just two days after the issuance of a request for proposal which was published in local and international news media, is not only false but capable of discrediting the process for the establishment of the airline, and discouraging interested parties” the statement indicated.

“We wish to state that throughout the process leading to the publication of the request for proposal, the guiding principle, has been transparency and accountability which we promised will remain till the final delivery of the project, and by which we stand,” he said.
