Metro National Conference Rejects Revival of Nigeria Airways



The National Conference on Tuesday rejected the recommendation to revive Nigeria Airways or create a new carrier.

The decision was taken on the floor of plenary while adopting the report of the Conference Committee on Transportation.

The conference equally rejected the recommendation that any driver that causes the death of any person, provided it is proved beyond reasonable doubt, shall pay N10 million fine.

It equally rejected the recommendation that such a driver should be sentenced to life imprisonment without the option of fine if he or she cannot pay, while the government pays the fine.

The conference, however, voted approved the recommedation for the dredging of River Benue and all other water ways, while the transport sector should be decentralised for efficiency.
