The hitherto neglected Nigeria’s aviation sector seems to have received a shot in the arm as they are now looking up for fast efficient trips, coupled with safety from unrelenting insecurities on land.


Green Airlines inaugural flight from Ibadan.

Barely four days after the water salute ceremony to mark the inaugural flight of Green airline took place at the Ibadan airport, Alakia, on Saturday to Lagos, with a road distance of less than 190 kilometers, hear this announcement from the governor of Plateau State, Caleb Mutfwang:

“It is amazing news to hear from the Ministry of Transportation that it has been arranged once again for the People of Plateau to have Flights between Abuja to Jos.

The Maiden flight is going to be on the 21st of August, 2023. Value Jet will fly from Lagos to Jos, Jos to Abuja, and take off from Abuja back to Jos and then to Lagos.

We are working for the railways to be operational as fast as possible so that the rail track from Bukuru to Jos will be fully deployed for the benefit of the people.

We believe in God that despite the leanness of our resources, the one Institution we will revive as a key to solving some of the issues and challenges of our people, especially students, will be the scholarship board. We will revive it”.





It seems certain that more of such announcements will be made by no less personalities than governors and ministers as development strides.


The newly named Nigerias Aviation minister, Festus Keyamo has pledged his honour, not to disappoint.

Let’s hear it for the Delta born SAN:



All these will energize the aviation sector, as Nigeria is having more and more female pilots in the cockpit. This will not stop their feminine smoke from the kitchens, to rise to the air.



Airline flights are the safest form of travel, for whatever it is worth.

And there’s the added important benefit here that is very significant:

When the rich see bandit kidnappers ahead, they’ll fly over them!

In the air, Nigeria.
