Dana Airplane crash update:plane was too faulty to fly. who exactly do we blame?

 I remember once my lecturer had mentioned that his reason for moving with his family to settle in North Cyprus  was to "live long". I thought about it for a while after that day.. I hadn't really thought about all the accidents that had taken place in my country..
So I wondered.... Is my country a death trap ??

       Growing up in Nigeria, I had always felt that surviving each day was a MEGA miracle.I always thought all the accidents and robbery attacks were just unfortunate incidents that could not be prevented and one had to be SUPER prayerful to come back home each day alive.
          Unlike those days when I was much younger, I am wiser now. I know that all these accidents can be prevented if many Nigerians in their various sectors aren't so corrupt and wicked especially with issues concerning human lives. I have sadly realized that because of the very irritating negligence of many Nigerians (leaders and followers) , people have lost their lives to very silly avoidable accidents.

Yesterday, 153 people lost their lives to a plane crash and at least 15 people died from a bomb blast in Bauchi . Someone I know lost six friends in that plane crash and she had narrowly escaped. Just like her, many people lost uncles , aunties, friends, parents.....loved ones. :(

      I read  that the Indian owners of the airline threw caution to the wind and insisted that the plane must fly in a bid to maximize profit....
According to a Dana Air official, “the plane has being giving faults for a very long time. There was a case when it was on ground in Uyo for over six hours, because of delayed flight, it had a bolt. And then in Abuja it happened a few days ago, then some people went with the aircraft but they could not come back, because it had a fault there and it couldnt leave Abuja.”
“The same engineers that fixed it and then they sent crew to bring it with passengers to Lagos.”
Confirming that the plane that crashed on Sunday, was not supposed to leave Lagos at all, the Dana official stated that “yesterday, it (Dana Air flight 0992) was not supposed to leave Lagos at all, but it left and then got to Calabar, gave fault and it was fixed and then they took it to Abuja, when they should have returned to Lagos but because they didn’t want to part with the little money they will make,  they took it to Abuja, loaded full passengers, and then it couldn’t get to Lagos. ”

Dear official , thanks for letting us know but what happened to you before that plane took off, were you too scared to say something?? would have allowed your loved ones to use that plane??
why did you not warn others anonymously through this same media house or another means about how dangerous the plane was  and how the Indian owners were not bothered long before now??
Why did the engineers not find a way to make sure the plane did not take off ??and if the pilot knew about it, why did he risk his life when he could have saved 153 passengers and himself????

There'll be heavy rain and poles will fall on people killing them on the spot and I ask myself who is responsible for checking those poles or signboards?
Roads will be so bad and trucks / trailers will still find a way to park on those roads.. where is the sense in that ???
Planes that should not even be used to fly a mosquito, will fly 153 people and I ask , who the hell is responsible??
Why people still live very close to the airport knowing the risk involved in 2012 is just beyond me ...

      The problems with our dear country did not start today and the solution is not with President Jonathan alone . Every Nigerian is accountable for the sad death trap the country has become.
Do not take bribe and be quiet or give bribe to silence someone.
If you hear or see something wrong, report it or make use of twitter, facebook or BBM or anonymously report to a media house or a popular blog.
      Don't just keep quiet and do NOTHING.If you do,you are just as guilty as the leaders you curse.

Someone left the comment below on a post on another blog:
"Also people should be careful using airlines in nigeria such as AirNigeria.I used to owerri sometime last October,it was horrible,the sound from the engine,the filtness of the interior,the broken seats,..I wish it only politicians that can perish in that aircraft because the owners of the airlines are their friends and cronies and therefore,no one cares to regulate the industry. Only Arik is really really safe"

  please feel free to use the comment section to warn people about other planes that are in worse conditions or about any other thing please.

        May the souls of all those that died in the plane crash and Bauchi bomb blast  rest in peace and may God give their families the fortitude to bear the loss.

much luv,
dangel eyez
