President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday visited the Lagos crash site of Dana airliner that ploughed into a Lagos suburb, killing all 153 people on board. He pledged action to improve air safety.
Jonathan had to go from the airport to the site of the crash by road instead of by helicopter, perhaps due to the densely populated nature of the area.
Jonathan told reporters that his administration was “totally committed” to improving air safety and promised to take action to improve the sector.
“We have been working very hard to improve the aviation in this country,” Jonathan said after viewing the destruction caused by Sunday’s crash. “This particular incident is a major setback for us… By the end of the day, I will make sure that this will not repeat itself in the country.”
Jonathan also gave the assurance that a high-level investigation would be conducted into the crash and condoled with the families of the victims.
