Dana air crashed on the 3rd of june, 2012 and in that crash 153 people were killed including my father Dr. Levi Ajuonuma. The airline was well aware that the aircraft was faulty but still took flight that day. After the crash their license to operate was suspended and just 3 months after the fatal crash, the federal government of Nigeria has decided to lift the suspension and allow the airline operate again. The wounded hearts are still bleeding and not being taken into consideration. Families had to wait for 2 and a half months before they were able to collect their respective corpse , due to the fact that a DNA testing process had to be done , this was also a very devastating period because it prolonged and delayed the healing process for the families involved. Most families are yet to bury their beloved ones and are still in the shock of it all. No compensation has been awarded and NO PUBLIC APOLOGY has come from the airline to the citizens of Nigeria. This petition is a platform to voice out and SPEAK UP against this action by the federal government and also to ensure that the airline is BAN from flying in Nigeria. Please sign and share to anyone you know that was affected by this crash and help stop this shameful decision by the federal government of Nigeria.

      Because the decision to allow Dana to fly again is heartless and cruel.

      By so doing Adaeze Oduah has declared to the world at large that the lives of her people are worthless and up for sale to the highest bidder.

      We beg to differ.

      The lives of our people are precious, meaningful beyond price.

      And if no one cares, we do because what affects one affects us all.

      As a people with so many of us functioning well in the Diaspora,it is disgracefully pathetic that such tragedies are glossed over, and not meticulously investigated in order to prevent re-occurrence of tragedy of such magnitude. It appears that people in authority will rather protect the financial interest of their mates at the expense of the lives of the people they are in power to protect. I am of the opinion that the unfortunate Dana Air Crash in question had not been meticulously investigated. The 153 people on board and the 69 people on ground are Nigerians whose lives had been wasted, and have been disallowed to contribute their quota to the development of our country. This is very saddening to me.

      Words cannot express my sadness and anger at the unnecessary and preventable loss of lives. Why can't we do things right in Nigeria? Things are done with levity at the risk of human lives...enough is enough...
