Abuja - National Conference delegates on Tuesday voted against the revitalisation of the disbanded Nigeria Airways.
The vote was taken as the conference considered the report of its committee on transport chaired by Senator Musa Adede.
The proposal was that the Presidency should take immediate action to revive the Nigeria Airways or in the alternative establish a new national carrier that will be private sector driven.
Before the vote was taken, delegates were informed that the disbanded national carrier was yet to pay its workers while it is also owing some foreign companies.
When the two options were put to vote, delegates rejected them.
Delegates adopted the proposal to move all issues of marine business to the Concurrent List just as they also agreed that River Benue should be dredged to make it navigational throughout the year.
