Omoyele Sowore, 2019 presidential aspirant, has criticised the new national carrier, describing it as a propaganda move by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to Sowore, Nigeria Air which was launched in London only exists on Facebook.
The Sahara Reporters publisher made the comments on Monday in Abuja during a meeting with members of the #TakeItBack Movement.
He said: “Nigeria Air doesn’t exist, it was a propaganda overdrive by APC because of the election. There is no any airline registered anywhere known as ‘Nigeria Air’.
“It doesn’t even exist even at the Corporate Affair Commission (CAC) in Abuja. It’s based on Facebook so you can buy your ticket early now and what you need to do to fly that airline is to check in on your Facebook page with Nigeria as your status update and decide to check out whenever you decided to check out.”
Sowore said the government was acting a script of deceit by designing a logo in another country using the Adobe Photoshop editing software.
While commenting on the political developments in the country, Sowore said he was excited over the crises that have befallen the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He said the #TakeItBack Movement has now become the real third force.
Sowore said he will announce the political party under which he would contest by the end of July.
He urged the youth not to bow to financial inducement from politicians and cautioned them against mortgaging their future.
“You will be hearing all kinds of discouraging words that we are too young and we have no money, why don’t you go for councillor,” he said.
“All of these things are fizzling out but this time they cannot find another excuse but they will come with another one. They are going to come after us. Don’t be under any illusion that they are going to fold their hands and watch.”
