Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Army, Abdulrazak Namdas, has lamented the safety of the Nigerian airspace.
This is coming days after the crash of an Airforce plane that led to the death of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Ibrahim Attahiru and 10 other military officers.
He lamented while speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
The lawmaker representing Jada/Ganye/MayoBelwa/Toungo Federal Constituency of Adamawa State described the situation whereby the nation has recorded three air mishaps in two months as devastating.
He also called on the Federal Government to urgently remedy the situation to avoid further loss of lives.
“We have to be very cautious these days, we have recorded three air crashes in two months. This is very devastating,” the lawmaker said two days the nation recorded another plane crash in Kaduna State.
“We all have to go back to the drawing board and see what the reason is. It shows that our safety record is really very low and that can be very demoralising.”
Namdas’ view is similar to that espoused by the Christian Association of Nigeria, who have also called for an emergency review of military plane crashes.
