    @Mark Nigerians should learn to accept the realities of life. No Nigerian airport is of International standard #FACT! Developed nations put safety ahead of profit and so don’t get upset when you see such signs they’re only warning their esteemed customers unlike Nigeria where no body was warned prior to the Dana air crash. Harold Damuren of NCAA and his crew i believe need a bit of education on airport and airspace management especially as regards security. #Learn to accept criticism.

    Of course, certainly true. Or are you saying that the statement is not true, defamatory or otherwise?
    Any objection to the statement portrays the maker as a fool at forty. Yeah…Gentlemen, it is high time we accept the truth to save our lives. Nigeria’s aviation industry is a complete quasi one. No compliance or obedience to international set standard rules for aviation. Shame to Nigeria. We are good at manage this, it will work.
    I thank God today that he saved my life earlier last year I flown with Air Nigeria. Hee, want to hear what happened? I was coming back to Nigeria, as the plane landed trying to run, waooo…see sound while it was trying to control the shooting… break…giving sound like a motor rising saw. If not that the pilot is an experienced one, loss of break could have become the issue of accident! NIGERIA ARISE!!!

Vendor’s Widow Disowns Family Over N500m Lawsuit Against Gbajabiamila

Femi Gbajabiamila

Josephine Okereke, wife of the Abuja-based vendor killed by a security aide of Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, has rejected the family’s demand of N500 million compensation.

Okereke while speaking to newsmen on Thursday stated that what she wants is justice for her late husband, and not the compensation being sought by his family.

Recall that some days ago, Ifeanyi, her husband, was shot by Abdullahi Hassan, a Department of State Services (DSS) operative attached to the speaker.

Days after the Speaker promised to ensure justice, the family of the slain vendor wrote the speaker, demanding a N500 million compensation.

Okereke, however, told journalists in Abuja that she was not privy to the N500 million compensation requested by the family.

“I was in my house when within 10 minutes my father-in-law came from Abia, he went out along with his other son and the next day I heard that my husband’s people are demanding N500 million as compensation,” she said.

“I was shocked and asked how will they be doing that and how will the speaker help the children again with such demand. All I want now is that the person that killed my husband to face justice.”
