Theres this proverb in yoruba that says "omo yi ma pa mi, omo yi ma pa mi after a while you tell the child omo yi ma pa ara e" meaning you keep telling a child "this child dont kill me, this child dont kill me after a while you tell the child, this child dont kill yourself"
I'm a firm believer in change and a new dawn but with the case of Nigeria i have a 2% hope that it will actually be for the better.
June 3rd 2012 was a very black sunday in Nigerian history, a dana airline carry 153 passangers crashed and there were no survivors
Our dear federal government immediaetly "suspended" and said no more flying, i even passed their office on my way to work on Allen and it was under lock and key with MOPOL outside.. Fast forward 3 MONTHS AND 2DAYS LATER our same f****d up government has decided to re-instate them and when i heard it i just started laughing because i clearly remember saying that it was only a matter of months before they came back, the FG is just doing us like yoyo.
Some of the people havent even being buried? o ma ga oh!!!
Now what i dont get is, they did not even finish their investigations and have immediaetly re-instated the airline, what guarantee do i have that the remaining planes are in good condition?so many questions.
THE RAPIDITY WITH WHICH THE GOVERNMENT HAS APPROVED THIS REINSTATEMENT WHEN DANA HAS NOT PAID ALL COMPENSATIONS TO FAMILIES(WILL IT EVEN BE PAID), AND WHEN WE STILL DON'T KNOW THE CAUSE OF THE CRASH IS WORRISOME.
THE INDIANS ARE THE MOST CORRUPT BUSINESSMEN IN NIGERIA AND THEY KNOW HOW TO PENETRATE THE NIGERIAN SYSTEM. IN MY OWN OPINION THE MINISTER OF AVIATION HAS A CASE TO ANSWER ON THIS HURRIED REINSTATEMENT.
The Minister of Aviation, Stellah Oduah, in a statement released by her said that "the government decided to rescind its order following the government’s satisfaction with the air-worthiness of the airline after a rigorous technical, operational and financial audit of the airline.(which useless rigorous technical crap, are these people kidding me)
Her statement was quoted thus: “The Federal Government has lifted the suspension of the operating licence of Dana Airline. By this development, Dana Airline is free to resume its normal commercial flight operations.”
Its only wise that the Dana air should be the official airline of the Federal government abi ki le feel?
If you feel that Nigeria is a country that has the wellbeing of its people at heart, your definetly in a jonzing world!
