Suspension of services as a form of protest is in the long run only gonna affect the operators and of course,the less than 5% of Nigerians that use PJs.
Its funny how the operators are quick to cry wolf over tax imposed on them,$4,000 is nothing compared to what they rake in.
Besides,their protest is of no concern to ordinary Nigerians who still find air travels a luxury let alone PJs.

LOL...this BBC AFRICA sef is it only in nigeria that they report?

Abdulrakeem said...

The fact that they have the money to pay don't mean they shouldn't complain.. is this tax justified? or should we say cos people can afford to buy cars they should be paying some trumped up charges?

Unless u didn't work for your money, then u won't mind. The luxury tax is exploitative.

Lol. They should make it $100.000 per departure and per arrival. Lol. Make Stella Odua use τ̲̅ђe money buy bullet proof pant and bra for her breast. Here in Singapor people who own Gwagon, X6, Range Rover etc pay heavy tax and their Govt use τ̲̅ђe money generated from τ̲̅ђe tax to buy big costa buses for students.

Nigeria a country dat wants to grow but won't cos everyone act like animals. Y wud u impose such money? Nah dem b d first to get private jet for dis world?. In many countries they ar ppl wit dis jets. I believe dat witch dat is ur aviation wateva is killing dis sector. Dis private jet is a need to dis ppl na well in nigeria if u have they hate u, if u don't ave anytin they still hate u. Wat a nation!

DadMatilda said...

@ bonario, u got it wrong dre my friend. why would d aviation ministry want to strangle dem? its not done so in most developing countries, there, you only pay excess tax for goods manufactured in your country but which you choose to buy those manufactured outside your country or service which can be rendered in your country by a fellow citizen but which you engage the service of a foreigner. most of this jet owners are company bosses and church leaders, the employees will suffer in the case of the MDs as he/she may try to sabotage employee's pension or evade tax and maybe cut down staffs so as to meet luxury while church leaders will impose higher offerings and tithes on church members.

Na so !!!

DadMatilda said...

@ 3:54pm, the govt of China/Singapore is doin so because the country manufactures cars and jeeps too, not in Nigeria where common tooth pick is imported. is that justifiable?

Bonita Bislam said...

Dis is gibberish news coz av nt learnt anytin gud frm it

I'm sure they can afford to shell out 4000 dollars. After all if the UK bond thing had stayed in place I'm sure they'd have paid the 3000 pounds for visa if necessary.

Hahahahahahahahahah so funny oooh like say bullet proof pant don enter market nw

Anonymous said...

Really? Bc they can afford a private jet, they should give away money without recourse? Why would I give $4000 per flight to the NCAA when the money is spent on over-Iinflated bulletproof cars? If I give my money, I expect it to be going towards a good use. Bullet proof cars is not one of them. I feel bad for the aircraft operators, they're caught between a rock and a hard place. Every day your aircraft is sitting, you're loosing money; every time your aircraft departs, you have to pay some greedy douchebag the money, who refuses to pay her employees adequately and uses the money to buy cars. What sham of a sector! Dont even know what could fix this mess.

I'm sure all the Pastors in Nigeria that own 1 will tell the congregation to increase their tithes and offerings....that God loves a generous giver....why are they complaining? Private Jet is for the rich.

Unknown said...

Another avenue for neighbouring countries to cash in on our flaws to make money from Nigerian private jet owners

Anonymous said...

No its not. The $3000.... that fee applies to aircraft operators under different operational standards.

Owners and operators should use their boycott to force closure on the Stella Oduah saga. Why should they fork over millions in new revenue to the ministry when it won't close its most pressing corruption case with transparency?

Anonymous said...

You hit the nail on the head with this point. I think thats the sore point of issue for the aircraft operators. I will act irrationally too if I were in their shoes.

Anonymous said...

1st point...partially right. 2nd point,baseless! Where on earth is that done,church leaders imposing higher offerings and tithes on church members? Hw much offering or tithe a church member pays is a personal decision. No one imposes that on anyone pls. U mst nt comment.

$3000 for Nigerian registered and $4000 for foreign registered. Nigeria already had some of the highest aviation charges in the world. The princess is hell bent on destroying the aviation industry. The airport has turn into a crusade ground as the professionals pray fervently for her tenure to be over.
Private jets are very very expensive to maintain even for the big boys, these charges are not sustainable.
Also contrary to popular belief, pastors do not own up to 2% of the private jets in Nigeria.
