Brilliant. Just brilliant but I'm positive FG or whoever the "contract" of finding a domain name is awarded to will not even bother pricing his "market". They'll always find a way around it

Thought so as well, they would simply choose another domain name e.g FlyNigeriaAir.com or something else.

They've bought every possible permutation. I saw different domains yesterday on twitter. As for using the number 9 to depict Nigeria, that won't be possible cos they've already shown us the logo and there was no number.

The guy must be a compound laminated fool to think that they'll use that domain.

They are going to use Nigeriaair.gov.ng and he'll bite his bony fingers in regret.

By virtue of the Cybercrime Act 2015, he is guilty of cybersquatting and NIRA would retrieve the domains from him. He's liable to more than 2 years imprisonment (could be 14 years) and more than 2M fine (could be 24M). By the time the FG is through with him, he'll be begging the FG to collect the domains back.

However, considering how profligate this government is, if they can use 86M to cut the hair of a bald President, they would be willing to pay more for the domain names.

When the government is ready, he'll lose those names unless the government isnt interested which might not be the case. He does not and cannot own the "Nigeria Air" trademark which is basically a sovereign entity.
You cannot just register "cocacola.whatever" just because you found the domain (you might get sued)

As it stands, the government has two options; to buy the domain names from Olumayowa or to include Nigeria Air in the gov.ng sponsored top-level domain. The latter is very unlikely since the carrier would be run as a private entity.

Also, failure to buy the domains would put prospective clients at the risk of being misled and defrauded because NigeriaAir.ng or NigeriaAir.com.ng would be the default go-to places for many people.

Therefore, it is safe to say that Olumayowa would be cashing out soon, even though he’d only be getting a fragment of the ridiculous amount we imagine would be budgeted to develop the National Carrier website.

But it might backfire on him. Government has the power (and can create the legislation) to force the domain name away from him.

If the guy is a politician, his good to go

Sharp guy. Sort of...

But it might backfire on him. Government has the power (and can create the legislation) to force the domain name away from him. In addition, they could block all searches to that domain within Nigeria and promote an alternative name.

He should not have been in a hurry to list a price.
