Victims of the June 3, 2012 Dana plane crash in Iju Ishaga area of Lagos State were on Monday honoured in Abuja and Lagos to commemorate the one year anniversary of the unfortunate incident.

President Goodluck Jonathan, at a solemn ceremony at the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) of the
domestic wing of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, unveiled a cenotaph to commemorate the accident. He also laid a wreath in honour of the 153 victims of the ill-fated Dana Flight 992.

The president, who expressed profound regrets over the loss of victims of the various aviation accidents that have occurred in the country, pointed out that his administration is determined to do everything humanly possible to prevent such monumental tragedies, and make Nigeria’s skies safe. He added that additional safeguards to enhance overall air safety in Nigeria were put in place immediately after the crash.

The unveiling of the memorial cenotaph, he explained, “should symbolise the turning of a new leaf and a closure of a painful old chapter in our history. Let it represent our resolve to maintain maximum vigilance in safety regulation of our aviation industry.”

Also at the unveiling of a cenotaph at the site of the crash in Lagos by Governor Babatunde Fashola, relatives of the victims of the plane crash
demanded safer skies and sanitisation of the nation’s aviation industry. They also demanded transparency and openness in aviation accident

May their souls continue to rest in peace.AMEN

Love Always
