He said, “I call on captains of industry to rise to the occasion and make Nigeria the hub of aviation in Africa, we have the number, we have the strength and so it is high time we leveraged on our strengths. We must remain competitive as possible in the industry given the necessary support.

As you know airline has a profit margin of between 5% and 25% if you are doing well and most airlines around the world have single interest digits this is because aviation is capital intensive so if you must thrive you must have  the right financial structure.
