Lagos - Less than 24 hours after Aero Contractors Airlines, Nigeria’s second largest commercial carrier, announced an indefinite suspension of its scheduled flight services, another domestic carrier, First Nation Airlines, has suspended its operations, reports Punch.
First Nation is owned by the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
