On June 3rd, over 150 people died in a plane crash that we believe could have been prevented if proper safety protocols were in place. We believe that an investigation of the Nigerian Aviation Industry and its standards is imperative to bringing the Industry up to par and therefore reducing the likelihood of another crash like we one we recently experienced.

We appreciate your efforts so far, in light of the June 3rd, 2012 calamity that claimed the lives of over 153 people including citizens of Nigeria, U.S.A, U,K, Canada, and China. Revoking the license of Dana airlines and initiating a full investigation into the incident is a good step in the right direction. However, we want to ensure that this does not become a forgotten issue, swept underneath a rug, as has occurred in the past.
We request that a full scale investigation into the Nigerian Aviation Industry's Safety standards be done and the recommendations be implemented and enforced as soon as possible.
We urge you to push until those responsible are identified and proper protocols are put in place to ensure that calamities like this do not recur. Many of us knew someone who died in that crash. We were all affected and we will never forget. All of these signatures represent eyes that will not rest, mouths that will not stop spreading the word, and hearts that will not stop caring. We need change. We demand change.
To Mr Jacky Hathiramani, the CEO of Dana Airlines. We read your press statement and we are appalled with your word choice. You called this tragedy, this disaster, a "mishap". This crash left children without fathers and mothers, husbands without wives, parents without children and so much more. We demand a real apology that truly captures the gravity of this situation and the action of this airline.
