One year today, we remember Dana crash victims

Today June 3 is exactly one year we lost 153 passengers on board the ill fated Dana airplane. The Federal Government has instituted an annual aviation safety programme in memory of the victims of the June 3, 2012 Dana Air crash.

The Ministry of Aviation spokesperson, Mr. Yakubu Dati, said, "The safety week will be observed from June 3, 2013, and will be done every year in honour of those who lost their lives in one of the most tragic accidents in the history of air transport in Nigeria."

There is a one year memorial service in honour of the victims going on at the Iju/Ishaga memorial Arcade. Families of the victims, Lagos State government officials, including Governor Babatunde Fashola and his wife are at the memorial service.
