“An airline door falling off is unacceptable” – Saraki on Dana Aircraft Incident



"An airline door falling off is unacceptable" - Saraki says Senate will take up case of Dana Aircraft's Door Falling Off - BellaNaija

Bukola Saraki, president of the 8th Nigerian Senate, has said the senate will take up the case of a Dana Aircraft door falling off.

Ola Orekunrin had on her Twitter shared how upon landing the emergency exit door of the Dana aircraft she was in fell off.

She and other passengers of the plane had shared photos of the door missing to corroborate their stories, and had discussed the door rattling mid-flight.

Dana Air had in a statement said it was impossible for the door to fall off without a passenger compromising it.

Saraki, quoting the tweet, described the incident as unacceptable, and will be taken up by the senate. He wrote:

Thank the Almighty for your safe landing. The safety of passengers and conditions of aircrafts must be the primary concern of all airlines that are operating in Nigeria. An airline door falling off is unacceptable. We will take this up at the Senate. It must not happen again.

    I work with these animals that call themselves Indians, and all they do is look for ways to exploit people, always scheming. Not paid pension for over a year, same thing with taxes. Heck there’s even no health insurance. Worked over 5 years with them and only 5k increment, a graduate o. I honestly don’t blame them but our Nigerian government that feigns ignorance to all these foreign owned companies. The passengers should better sue them

      @ Anonymous, I usually agree with your comments but you should reconsider referring to a race of over 1bn people as animals, no matter what your bosses do.
      The truth is, a number of Nigerians like yourself are more than happy to whinge about working conditions under foreigners but wouldn’t care to manage better conditions from a fellow Nigerian. Fancy that. 5 years!
      I believe Dana is owned by the Chaghoury’s who are Lebanese by origin. Clearly you are dedicated by staying long but must either ask HR to reconsider your experience and pay the going rates or leave the company. The decision to, tends to be the hardest part.

    These our leaders are jokers really. WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU TAKING UP WITH THE SENATE, the only justifiable cause of action would be to revoke their license and ground all their aircrafts. Politicians need to stop thinking that we citizens are stupid and clueless and you can just shut us up with your meaningless lies wrapped up in useless statements. Just do your job.
