DANA5President Goodluck Jonathan Monday morning unveiled a cenotaph built in remembrance of the 153 passengers and crew of the ill-fated Dana Air Flight 992 which crashed into a furniture works and printing press building in the densely populated Iju/Ishaga neighbourhood of Lagos on June 3, 2012.

At a solemn, brief ceremony held at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, attended by Stella Oduah, the Minister of Aviation and other ministers, religious leaders, members of the National Assembly and families of some of those who died in the air tragedy, President Jonathan, who spoke after unveiling the cenotaph and laying of wreath, described the air crash as a monumental tragedy for the nation and pledged that his administration will do everything possible not only to ensure that the nation’s airspace is safe, but that there is no re-occurrence of such aircraft incident in the country.

The President further added that the cenotaph is a symbol that the victims of the Dana plane crash will never be forgotten as well as a reminder to all Nigerians to do everything possible to prevent a similar occurrence.

A representative of the families of the victims of the plane crash also laid wreath at the occasion which featured Christian and Muslim prayers.
