May the Peace of God be with Nigerians

I wept in my spirit when d sad news of d dana air carsh broke out. But however, no matter d pain and agony, it change noting. My pryaer is dt God give d family d strength to carry on.

It's such a sad incident it's

It's such a sad incident it's sadder that such a large number of people had to die before we could face our problems every day we fly and experience different kinds of faults but who said that it is reported. For all we know the fault may not have been reported. But I implore the government to set standards that are acceptable and the airlines in turn should comply to avoid disasters like this and to provide qualified people as ministers not high school leavers. So that our aviation industry would be internationally accepted because every day over 10000 people entrust their lives in this industry. May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. AMEN. I believe that the government should forget about petrol and think about lives. I hope they read this

Can someone send me Ike

Can someone send me Ike Ochonogor's picture.I served with him

put the blame on Aviation Minister and Dana air not Jonathan

I agree that there is so much Damage done already in the Nigerian system by past administrators which will take time to repair following a peaceful dialogue just the way President Jonathan is doing it. but if Jonathan wants things to speed up then he should adopt the formal President of Ghana J Rawlings style by killing all the bad eggs in the system. I am Afraid to go to church for the fear of BOKOHARAM and even when we sit at home AIRPLANE comes crushing down on us, where is safe?

I put the blame of this plain Crash on the Aviation Minister and Dana Air not Mr President so I say May the soul of the faithfull departed rest in perfect peace Amen.


i agree with you, they must face the full wrath of the law.

Re: Sad story to tell when told to young ones

This is a national tragedy! So many people died due to the greed and negligence of others. However, I feel coming up with compensation at this point is the most insensitive thing to do. Do you know how many people that would have wished everything away just to see their beloved ones alive? Money is not everything. We should do the proper things in nation and everyone who is culpable should be jailed like they do in other countries!

MR president, i thought your

MR president, i thought your name is Goodluck , why is it that nigerians are having badluck since ur regime, check urself well. these are human beings not chickens please.

Sad Story To Believe When told to Young ones

Nigeria lost 153 Indigence just a day on the Same spot? How much will erase the tears from the eyes of the Mothers of the Deceased? Is it the N16M. or What?
May their souls rest in Perfect Peace(Amen)


May their gentle souls rest in the Right hand side of the LORD. but its such a sad but as for me I don't think the Fault is from Mr. President.
But the pilot was too Stupid a plane that has operated for Twenty-Three years or Thereabout.


Could the speculation that the airspace was closed for 2hours to allow Dame Patience jonatrthan to land which forced the Dana Aircraft to crash land


MAY their gentile rest in the Right hand side of God

Ways to reduce Curruption in Nigeria

Ways to reduce curruption in Nigeria
These are my suggestions of possible ways to curb curruption
For tis country to move forward
(1). Any currupt person or persons in either private or public office
Found guilty of curruption should face capital purnishment
(2). All assets of this fellow should be conviscated.
(3). All his family members should be banned from public office
as well as the private office.

State of the Nation and Dana Air Crash.

God should come and intervene in Nigeria's situation as everything has gone wrong with Nigeria. Our education, judiciary,politics,public administration even religion is nothing to be proud of. This is not the Nigeria of my Dream 30 yrs ago when Nigeria was better than China. God will not forgive the Vagabonds In Power(VIP) who destroyed the future of app. 170 Nigerians. We need both physical and spiritual transformation definitely not the Jonathan's type.

passanger 14 and 13 was told to get down from the plane

Omonigho akisanya did not board, she was told to get down and
Pay for a seat for her son, she could not secure another seat so she went with another air line. Pls update the manefiest
We give GOD all the glory

Re: UPDATED: Dana Air Flight

It's so sad that a crash had to happen before our attention could be drawn to the poor state of aircrafts in Nigeria. Airline operators just want to be in business, so they never own up and address the lapses within. Just last week I was onboard 9J(992) from Abuja to Lagos and the sound of the engine during landing brought excruciating pain to my ears. I had to blocked my ears with my index fingers till we landed. One of my colleagues was so discomforted and had to get off his sit, crawl to the back where some the cabin crew stay, just to get any help. It was our second experience. We experienced the same thing on our route to Abuja using a different airline.

Appropriate authorities need to enforce severe checks consistently. It's not just Dana airline - there may be other culprits. We can still save more lives. Thank you.

May the soul of the departed rest in peace. Amen.

Everybody kept blaming mr

Everybody kept blaming mr president, but i blame those ministers in charge of our various sectors especially the unhonorable minister for aviation for her high levelled incapacitations. And i put it straight to her, the blood of the deceased is right there in your head because you failed to juditiously use your God given opportunity to better the nigerian aviation sector, instead, you brought calamity to nigerians. Mr goodluck jonathan, you would be held responsible for all this mess, if you dont severely penalise this minister and her likes for this and several failures in our other facets of endeavors. May the souls of the departed rest in perfect peace. Amen. And to danas air company, mr president most prove his true identity as a true son of our land by makin sure they pay beyond human repairs to this heavy plight of our dear nation. Thanks


All can keep saying what they want but the law of Karma (deed) counts in every walk of life like everywhere else it counts in Nigeria... too !!!

Can we ask ourselves how many have cursed for the pain & suffering innocent, honest people have gone through due the the corrupt ways of life.... which to most is as normal as breathing...

May God be able to cleanse the filth of corruption, lies and fake deceipt with divine intervention....

Be Blessed & may the departed souls RIP...... !!!!

Keep Christ FIRST!

No is not the time to curse anyone, or to wish ill-fortune to anyone's household!

I agree with you that this situation is terribly unfortunate! However as Christians, we must never forget three simple principles (NO MATTER HOW WEARY THE WORLD APPEARS!)

1. We must continue to LOVE our Creator and our neighbors as we love ourselves.

2. FORGIVENESS is the first step to HEALING!

3. Earth is not our final destination. Praise the Lord your RISEN SAVIOR that the hope of SALVATION is still holds the inifinite truth that Heaven awaits us!

I pray with all of my heart that the love of Christ will shine as a beacon of light through everyone that has read this message! Yes, this is an unfortunate event, but may God be glorified in your words and in your actions! AMEN!

is he to be blame?

sometimes i wonder why people not using their God given head well, what has Dana air crash got to do with GEJ, is he the owner of the airline or the director,why have u decided to be annonymous not identifying urself, rubbish,almanjiri like u.

Nigerians must now

Nigerians must now individually&collectively face,confront&defeat this monster CORRUPTION even if we are on the firing line.The pilot as a professional would have stood his ground refusing to fly a faulty plane knowing his life&others depends on his decisions.The power of one man's solid decision can save or destroy all.The idians MUST be held accountable&face the full wrath of the law.

i here pasenger 102 also

i here pasenger 102 also escaped tge tragedy as he had an urgent meeting and had to forgo the flight

God help us all....

God help us all....

Dark Day Still Not Over

I never wanted to comment here, But the heavy weight of pain i am under is compelling me. Nigeria, we mourn the lost of our precious kins men, What is really wrong with Nigeria,

Sometime i fear if there will ever be cure for this country sickness "Corruption" I wonder what a 22 year old plane is still doing in our airports. In a country where no one is telling the truth, you are force to admit the possibilities of anything, How are we sure this is not boko haram. or some kind of political games. We all are aware that because of one person, The Nigeria mafias could take down a full plane, this has happened in the past.

Well my prayers goes to the family of the departed, May God almighty himself grant you the fortitude to bear this irreversible lost, And may the soul of the departed rest in perfect peace.

And i mourn for Nigeria, We will never get there if we continue to turn our eyes away from the truth that we are not unity in any form.

God have mercy

''The name of d lord is a strong tower & d righteous runeth into it & they're safe''..............but no one can stand except by his grace. I can't help but imagine that it could've been me or you........repent now b/4 it is too late. May God give us all d fortitude to bear this irriperable loss...Amen. We'll continue to pray 4 Nigeria & her leaders.

Nigeria, A giant of Africa - AGAIN

Nigeria, which way are we going? from the assumption of this man so call GEJ, can anyone count how many Nigerians we have lost. Blood bath every day. Let's advice him to voluntarily resign if he is not cabale.

Plane crash in Lagos

I would like to express my deep condolences to the people of Nigeria on the terrible plane crash in Lagos. It was a shock to hear of this accident and I know mere words may offer but little comfort at this tragic incident. But I am sure that people all over the world share the deepest feelings of sympathy and mourning for the lost lives as nobody is totally protected against such disaster. May God bless the victims and give strenght to their families during this time and always. May the souls of our deceased Nigerian brothers and sisters rest in the peace of the Lord.

Jonathan, NCAA do something!!!

And for Dana Mangement & d Manager
connected to this great national loss-May
U & Ur household be cursed 4ever because
this is never negligence but sheer
wickedness-d Lord Almighty will give U
immeasurable portion of this agony!!
To be financially bouyant at the detriment of 153 living
beings-you took such decision. It's
Unfortunate-We don't have a
President, no law, no Authority to
Checkmate anything-everything is just
Upside down. Nigeria is a dumping ground 4
Useless bilateral business investments-
behind d scenes, we remain blindfolded-
having sold us out! Boko Haram-no solution
Basic infrastructural facilities,4 where?
All will be well-but before then-I foresee
4d bereaved,as ur loved Ones'Soul
4sure Rest in Perfect Peace, May God
Almighty grant Us all the fortitude to
bear this great loss in Jesus name-Amen!!

Jonathan, NCAA do something b4 we're ruined!!

Na wa o,Goodluck Jonahthan-i bow 4U o.
Rather than making agitations for
irrelevancies(Presidential honorary tomb)
pertinent issues like these are most Important. But I still
believe U, not until when U ruin Us all
with ur presidential incompetencies, U'll not
back off. I wonder why a 22year Old
Obsolete plane should still be granted
flying Permit- why not? Kickbacks &
bribes are d order of the day-Nigeria
Civil Aviation Authority-Oya, let's
Listen 2ur flimzy excuses-I wish Ur
families were victims-U'll know how it
feels 2 loose a dear one.

it is high time we take the

it is high time we take the bull by the horn. president do something.
