NACC to introduce American Airline to Nigeria

17 October 2012, 16:03

Kaduna  - The Nigerian-American Chamber of Commerce (NACC) on Wednesday said the American Airline would soon commence operation in Nigeria to further facilitate business activities.

The President of the chamber, Mr Sheriff Balogun, said this during a courtesy visit to Gov. Patrick Yakowa in Kaduna.

Balogun, represented by the chamber's Vice President, Mrs Mary Okah, said the airline would fly directly to the Kaduna International Airport from the U.S.

He said that the chamber was convinced of the genuine efforts being made by the state government to restore peace to the state.

 ``Since we are confident that the governor is working to maintain peace in the state, the chamber is making arrangement to bring American Airline into Nigeria that will fly directly to Kaduna Airport, using same as their hub.’’

Balogun said the presence of the airline would create more jobs, open up new businesses and enhance government's internal revenue.

He added that the chamber would in November hold a business summit with the  theme, “Peace and Economic Development’’, to explore the business environment in Nigeria.

The president appealed to the state government to assist the chamber in hosting the summit, which he said, would cost N7.5 million.

Responding, Yakowa said the government would continue to partner with the chamber to provide conducive environment for business activities in the state.

He said the vast potentials inherent in the state had attracted investors, lamenting however that the insecurity witnessed in some parts of the country had affected business activities.
