    When people hear of a sudden mishap like accident or crash, first peculiar tging they do in anxiety is to dail numbers of loved ones or friend who should have been en route the destination towards which d ill fated tragedy occured. Network, low battery could contribute in creating more an anxiety than we can ever imagine. Such was d case of last Sunday after the Crashed Dana Airplane was reported to have taken the lives of over 163 souls. Some could have flied due to fear of road transport, some to be able to keep to schedule while others cus dey can afford d luxury of flying. Now can we liken this harzard to that which occurs on our roads on daily basis. Either way non can really tell which is safer. The most important thing here is that lives have been lost. Lives of our family members, friends, husbands, fathers, brothers, sisters. Some I believe might be less concerned about this mishap but hey, it could have been your in law, old friend, or even someone who is meant to give approval to that life changing job you’ve been gunning for all these years. Hmmm! We in Nigeria don’t get concerned in matters like this until it hits us directly. Do we have to wait for this to happen? Imagine sleeping at night in the comfort of your bed and bang, a plane crashes into your bed room? That aint funny I assume. Imagine taking a scroll with your new found love (fiancee) within your neighbourhood and alas, a plane crashes right unto you. Who is safe here? Where is safe? Could we ever be safe? These questions should be lurking in our hearts, pounding so hard that we can hardly breath. The President says flags should fly half mast, but hey Mr President, we expect more than that. Policies should be looked into, projects should be executed, people should be considered as people. The next thing you would hear on the media is ”plane crash even in America”. Blood fire, whats that? Abeggggiiiii. Do what you have to do to reduce these harzards or else we put a curse permenently on that name!

    May your soul rest in peace Dr Levi Ajuonuma.
