here's some perspective for you. Naija isn't the only country with old planes. http://intransit.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/04/06/how-old-is-your-plane/

p.s - Its tougher for african countries to buy brand new planes. the waitlist for a jet is years long (and it takes years to even make one)

There is no mention of Associated Aviation. Is it that their aircrafts are too old to be assessed ?
