FG Removes 7% Waiver On Aircraft, Spares by Anambra1stSon(m): 6:51am On Jul 22
The Federal Government has granted a seven per cent tax waiver on imported aircraft and spares into Nigeria.

The Airlines Operators of Nigeria, which disclosed this in a statement made available to our correspondent on Wednesday, said the government had been prompt in responding to the request made by the association.

The Vice Chairman of AON, Allen Onyema, explained that the Senate Committee on Aviation held an interactive meeting with all the aviation agencies in Nigeria led by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika.

He said all the Nigerian airlines represented by the AON leadership had made presentation to the government.

According to the statement, Onyema noted that the presentation made by the AON to the senate committee had yielded a positive response from the government and support from the Nigeria Customs Service.

Onyema said, “The meeting was called by the Senate to discuss the reasons for the recent upsurge in flight delays and flight cancellations amongst other issues and challenges facing the aviation industry.
“It was on this occasion that AON made its presentation of challenges facing all the airlines. Our member airlines were present but we made an articulated collective presentation to the Senate, which I read as the vice president on behalf of the association.

It was on this occasion that the AON presented the issue of the partial implementation of the Finance Act 2020 which prohibits the payment of duties and Value Added Tax on imported aircraft and aircraft spares by the Customs Service.

“Of note was the presence of a seven per cent surcharge on the assessed duties which was not supposed to be. This caused delays in the clearance of aircraft and aircraft spares leading to grounding of aircraft that would have been flying.”

He noted that after the senate meeting, the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, and Sirika were contacted by the airlines on the challenges.

The AON noted that since 7th July, airlines have been clearing their aircraft spares without having to pay a seven per cent surcharge.
Onyema said, “AON, for the avoidance of doubt, commends the Federal Government for its unflinching support for the growth of indigenous investments in Nigeria.
“This was very evident in the manner the government got this challenge addressed immediately within 48 hours to the joy of the airlines.
“We equally commend the Nigerian Customs Service for also assisting the airlines, including but not limited to Air Peace, which was used as an example, in getting their aircraft spares and aircraft released.”
He added that the planes so far cleared had started flying.

This is Beautiful.

Let's hear from the horse's mouth....


The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Air Peace Airlines, Allen Onyema, says it is untrue to say that President Muhammadu Buhari does not like the Igbos.

Onyema defended his viewpoint on Saturday on the grounds that his airline had hugely benefited from the current administration.

I’m a beneficiary of Buhari’s kindness to Igbos – Air Peace boss

“I thank God for our President, Muhammadu Buhari, it is very untrue that he does not like the Igbo.
Without me being a member of his party, or any party, I am a beneficiary of his support for indigenous businesses.

“The Federal Government of Nigeria has given me destinations they have never given anybody, yet I am an Igbo man, from Anambra,” Onyema said on an interview with Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS).

Furthermore, he stressed that people should not read negative meanings to the good works of the Buhari administration.

“I don’t know anybody, I don’t have any godfather, President Buhari through his minister, Hadi Sirika, has given me China, London, Portugal, the entire Europe, United States and India.
“He’s even given me Jedda, and I’m not a Muslim; the government has given me about twenty destinations to fly to.”


He added that;
“The President wants equal economic development everywhere.”


These are the Great and True Igbo men true igbos listen to.

Now let's see if Alex onyema of airpeace would still keep singing buhari's praise like an slowpoke.
Even after reading this thread you still typed this?
Hatred is truly worse than HIV ooo!
Anyways, Sane people will know who is a slowpoke after reading your comment.

Sir Onyema, please can you buy or lease an airbus A380, I swear that is the plane I'll board its first class premium when traveling out of this country. I may consider the boeing 747 but the 8 model.
Life is sweet when money is involved.
