Nigerian commercial planes and their ages. Arik has the youngest commercial planes



I blogged this a couple of weeks ago but i'm blogging it again for the benefit of our latest fans and for those who were or have not been disposed to take a tour around our blog site......

Below you will see a list of commercial planes used domestically i guess, with their ages. Unbelievably, Kabo airline still operates a 41 year old airplane......*yels!!! AIRplane!!* These things fly in the air for crying out loud. You suspend a 41year old plane in the air and when it gets tired, what happens.......?

It all still comes down to bad leadership. You operate in a country where the leaders are not followers oriented, they don't care about the people they are expected to lead and then what happens? Of course bribery becomes the order of the day and then policies will not be effectively implemented.

Certainly, this is the case of Nigeria. Bad leaders, poor management. How can an airline be flying a 41 year old plane for God's sake. I'm sure this can't happen in Ghana. I don't even want to mention developed countries, Ghana is developing just as Nigeria is but i'm certain this isn't the case in Ghana because their government is strict.

See list after the cut.......
