The Federal Government has said that it will beam its searchlight on Dana Air and other airlines operating in the country to ensure that Nigerians travelling by air are safe.
The Minister of State for Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, made this known when he visited the scene of the incident involving a Dana Air plane at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa, and Rivers State.
Sirika explained that the Federal Government, had through the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, increased oversight on all airlines, with particular attention on Dana.
He explained that the reason for the increased attention on Dana was because the airline had been in the news for bad reasons lately.
Though, the minister did not mention any of the reasons, he maintained that the Federal Government was taking the issues seriously.
The minister, however, explained that investigation had begun with a view to ascertaining the cause of Tuesday’s incident, adding that the findings would be made public in accordance with the law.
He pointed out that Nigeria had been observing global best practices in the aviation sector, recalling that the country scored high in its recent rating by the International Civil Aviation Organization.
