Dana crash: Governors forum demand thorough investigation

The Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, has called for a thorough investigation of the Dana airline crash of last Sunday which claimed the lives of about 216 people comprising of 153 persons on board and an additional 63 on the ground.

 The NGF who spoke via a press released signed by its chairman and governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi, also called for the implementation of the recommendations of the reports of previous crashes.

 “The Dana Airline incident is particularly one plane crash too many; we call for a thorough investigation and the implementation of the recommendations of the reports of previous crashes,” NGF said.

 The governors called on Nigerians to “search their souls” as it says, all “must collectively seek solutions to those factors that have continued to bring tragedies upon us”.

 The NGF also commiserated with the “families of the deceased passengers of the Dana Air crash in Lagos, Nigeria, the Allied Air crash in Accra, Ghana, and the victims of the Bauchi bomb blast”.

 The governors’ forum also called on relevant agencies to “immediately take steps to reassure travelers of the safety of air travel in Nigeria and our compliance with global aviation standards”.
