The concensus on BEN television's morning phone-in is that Nigerians are not competent enough to handle an aviation industry. Some complain that it is the corruption which causes these problems. Many called for the sacking of the Aviation Minister, Babalola Borishade. One said that sacking wasn't enough and only punitive measures would send a message. He was probably referring to corporate manslaughter charges which were brought into UK legislation followig the Hatfield and Paddington rail crashes.
Another man poignantly said that we here in the UK were scared to move back. Those of us in the UK don't want to move back to Nigeria to go and die. I insist that these things will continue to happen while we stay silent. We need the legal minds to launch criminal or even civil lawsuits against ADC and the Aviation Ministry. Civil disobedience, picketing, boycotting airlines. We're too docile a nation, we're too lackadaisical, too horizontal, too accepting. Wake up, people!
