  1. I believe, and strongly, that outright privatization and liberalization of the economy through the NSE (Nigeria Stock Exchange), by way of IPO (initial public offer) is the way forward for the country economically and financially. Government cannot be regulator and operator/manager of the economy at the same time. This is corruption, and encouraging corruption. Government should focus solely on regulation, and leave management of the economy the citizens.

    Yes to the privatization and (liberalization) of the airports through the NSE by way of IPO.

    Not only the airports, but NNPC, the refineries, Ajaokuta steel, NTA, Radio Nigeria, and other commercial enterprises still under government’s management.

    Please it MUST be through the NSE by way of IPO. This will make it, 1, possible for all Nigerians to participate, 2, transparent, and 3, to be well subscribed.

  2. My Honorable Senator Ben Bruce, I appreciate your advice and would advise you to talk to ur colleagues in the 8th NASS to support Executive by enacting acts that will force the executive at all levels to spend the available resources wise, we need to use the oil money to finance diversification of our economy before oil become worthless like coal. Most of advanced nations are turning to greener energy. In less than 20 yrs most vehicles will be electric powered. Though belated but we have to act now to stop the country going into bankruptcy

    • The country sells crude oil and imports all the finished products of the same crude oil. This is a loss, and a monumental loss for the matter. The government doesn’t have money to pay salaries of its civil servants, and contractors it had engaged.

      It’s not even generating money from taxes. It may cost it alot trying to generate revenues from taxes.

      Outright privatization and liberalization of the economy through the NSE by way of IPO, not just the airports, will generate revenue for government on the short term, as well as on the long term.

      The country’s continued importation of the finished products of crude oil is responsible for the continuous fall in value of the Naira, and the level of corruption that has refused to abate.

  3. Privatization is the Capitalists answer to anything they can Capitalize. Who is the government going to sell the Airports to? Isn’t it going back in the hands of crooked politicians? We have seen this play before.

    Why don’t you play something new like empowering cities, like giving cities control of airports? Why can’t the people of Ikeja who live with the pollution of 3 airports not have control or benefit from them?

    • “Who is the government going to sell the Airports to?”

      To Nigerians of course, through the NSE (Nigeria Stock Exchange) by way of IPO (initial public offer). The airports (and other government commercial enterprises like NNPC etc.) will then become quoted companies on the stock exchange. This will bring about transparency, accountability, efficiency, and productivity.

      Outright privatization and liberalization of the economy through the NSE by way of IPO will empower the local government areas and states economically and financially.
