Ilegbodu, who re­vealed this during a public hearing organ­ised by the House Com­mittee on Aviation, lamented the poor con­dition of the airline, as it is unable to pay salaries of staff.
He said, “The airline is badly managed. If ef­ficiently managed at this period of time, the com­pany will be revived.”
