WHY PRESIDENT BUHARI’S TRIP TO FRANCE IS NOT IMPORTANT AT THIS TIME
The president travel to France for a supposed business deal, but in reality, the business deal isn’t exactly what it seems like
According to report, president Buhari's trip to France is purely for business and economic reasons according to Garba Shehu. Contrary to the opinion that the President trip is purely for pleasure.
During his trip, President Buhari met with Total, the largest French investor in Nigeria; the Dassault Systems, a leader in digital communications and software development; and Airbus, makers of airplanes and a prospective-partner in the new national airline starting in 2022.”
Airbus is also doing so much with the Nigerian Air Force and other players in the aviation sector. President Buhari also met Danaflex, a spare parts manufacturer in France, founded by a proud, inspiring Nigerian from the Southeast.”
Contrary to this, companies with decades of experience and knowhow wanted out and struggling with new reality of air travel. But the federal government sees state involvement in the airline business as a good idea, rather than road and bus travel expansion across Nigeria with an airplane manufacturer not even operator is what is needed.
But Airbus has a depressed market & cannot offload airplanes fast enough. Airlines & aircraft leasing firms are returning or retiring aircraft by bucket load. Is that what Paris Summit brings? Debt reduction but buy from us first to save our jobs, industries & sustain our wealth?
