What is currently playing out in Senator Ifeanyi Okowa’s residence and campaign off on Anwai Road all in Asaba, capital of Delta State, has truly brought to the fore the time tested maxim that “success has so many parents and relations and failure is an orphan.”

The senator representing the Delta North Senatorial District is now the beautiful bride in Delta State since December 8 2014 when, against all odds, he won the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ticket to contest the February 28 governorships election in the oil rich state whose governor has been preaching “Delta Beyond Oil”.

Okowa’s Asaba home has now become a Mecca, playing host to all manner of people including co-aspirants, all of whom are coming to pledge their loyalty.  Even those who had boasted that they will defeat him silly but ended up scoring less than 50 votes at the primary are falling head over heels to show their support. Well, it is good to be a winner!

FG Orders Turkish Airlines To Suspend Operations Into Nigeria

Published

on

Turkish Airlines has been ordered to suspend its operations into Nigeria by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The directive came through the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

The directive follows repeated cases of poor passenger treatment by the international carrier.

According to NCAA, the airline is expected to suspend its operations until it was ready to operate with the right size of aircraft that could transport all passengers with their baggage at the same time.

In recent times, there have been cases in which the airline failed to bring in passengers into Nigeria together with their checked-in baggage.

In a letter to the airline by the acting Director-General, NCAA, Capt. Abdullahi Sidi, which was made available by the Federal Ministry of Aviation in Abuja on Thursday, December 12th the authority expressed displeasure at the incidents, which it said had been going on for over two weeks.

Sidi said the incidents had become so bad that most recent Turkish Airlines flights arrived in Nigeria without more than 85 per cent of passengers’ baggage on board.

He said:

“Our airport authority has been facing a serious crisis controlling the passengers at the airport whenever they arrive without their baggage. This issue has made passengers to carry out several mob actions at our airports and it is a great threat to our airport facilities.

“In view of all these, and a series of meetings held with the Turkish Airlines personnel, which did not yield any solution to this problem, the NCAA is therefore left with no option than to direct Turkish Airlines to suspend its operations into Nigeria until such a time when the airline is ready to operate with the right size of aircraft that can transport all passengers with their baggage at the same time.

“If no remedial action is carried out by your airline, this suspension shall be effective from the 16th of December, 2019.”
