The Minister of Aviation Mrs Stella Oduah seems to have a lot hanging over her head these days from the re - withdrawal of the Dana license drama to the purchase of the bullet proof 'SUPER EXPENSIVE VEHICLES' saga. This article came in a few days ago and with my tight schedule, I was only able to go through it today. Edet seems to have a point here and let us always remember the ALUU 4 in our prayers.
Ailing veteran actor, Kayode Odumosu aka Pa Kasumu's state of health has deteriorated.

Following the FG directive to stop operations, Dana Air writes an apology letter to its esteemed customers and promises safe flying henceforth.

TO OUR ESTEEMED GUESTS
APOLOGY FOR INTERRUPTION IN FLIGHT SERVICES
We wish to express our sincere apologies for the interruption in our flight services due to a directive by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) on Sunday, October 6, 2012.
The action, we have been informed, is to allow the regulatory agency to conduct an operational audit of all airlines operating locally by external consultants, and Dana Air is the first airline to be so audited.
We regret all inconveniences caused as a result of this interruption and we would like to assure you of our total commitment to the process and full cooperation with the authorities.
At Dana Air, the safety and comfort of our guests and crew is a major priority and we would continue to adhere strictly to all local and international safety regulations in the delivery of our world class air transport services.
A concerned Nigerian sent in this article and after going through, i decided it was worth publishing. Let us try to see this Dana drama from another angle. In the wake of the recent Associated Airlines crash, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority in its usual knee jerk style clamped down the wings of Dana airline to give a false impression of closely monitoring the activities of airlines which it had hitherto abdicated. Dana Airline has become the fall guy resulting from the inefficiency and incompetence of the NCAA. A crash occurs and the first thing to do is to look for a scape-goat, instead of focusing on the real issues bedeviling the industry.
World Mental Health Day is celebrated on every 10th of October. Today, I take a moment to reflect on the many challenges faced by those living with mental illness, especially those who are unable to access treatment.
This is a perfect way to urge others to support mental health prevention, mental health education, and improved access to mental health treatment. Today is our chance to restart the conversation about mental health, to speak openly about uncertainties and misconceptions surrounding mental illnesses, and to move toward eliminating the damaging and unnecessary stigma that lingers around mental illness.
