Sirika did not, however, give reasons for the suspension, sparking reactions from Nigerians.

Reacting to the development, Sani said the decision was wise so the federal government can plan properly before it finally takes off.

In a tweet, the Kaduna Central lawmaker said, “The Minister is the captain and FEC are the Air Traffic Controllers.

“Its better and wiser the flight is aborted before take off and incur the wrath of the passengers, than for it to meet the storm. I believe when the weather is clear, we will take off. Thank you FEC.”
