Boeing 737 Max Banned In Nigeria, Says Aviation Minister
He said that no operator would be allowed to fly the aircraft into or out of the country.
The aviation minister stated this on Wednesday to journalists after the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

The Federal Government had on Monday reiterated its stands that air travellers in the country have no reason to worry about the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft as none is operational in Nigeria.
According to the aviation minister, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), has issued the necessary advisory as it relates to the country.
