NANNM MOURN DANA AIR CRASH VICTIMS
Date Posted: 22/Jun/2012

National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives has commiserated with relatives of victims of the Dana air craft crash.

A statement by the association’s Deputy Secretary-General, Mr. Yusuf Badmus, on behalf of the President, Mr. Lawal Dutsina, and made available to newsmen in Abuja, also called for thorough investigation of the crash.

It said: “Nurses and Midwives all over the country have joined millions of Nigerians to mourn the death of over 153 passengers, who were victims of the ill-fated Dana aircraft, Boeing Mcdonnel Douglas (MD)-83 flight 0992 which crashed at Iju-Shaga, Lagos.

“We commiserate with President Goodluck Jonathan, families and friends of the victims and the nation in general.”

The association regretted that the accident happened at a time the government had declared improvement in the sector, describing the unfortunate incident as a major set back to all the efforts made by government and investors.

It called for a “holistic investigation of the remote and immediate causes of the Sunday crash and the report be made public with a view to meting out punitive measures to individuals and agencies found culpable in the crash.

“Nurse Dutsinma insisted the probe this time should not be limited to Dana airlines and their fleet, but all the aircraft operating in Nigeria,” the statement added.
