APC expresses deep sorrow over plane crash
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condoled with the families of all those who died in Thursday's plane crash in Lagos and prayed for the speedy recovery of those who were injured.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party expressed shock and deep sorrow at the double tragedy, considering that the crash involved the remains of the late Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Agagu, as well as his family and friends.
It prayed that God will give Dr. Agagu's family and the families of all the victims the grace and strength to tide over the calamitous occurrence and the difficult days ahead.
APC said the crash, coming about 15 months after the air disaster involving Dana Air, has shown that in spite of the progress so far made in ensuring that the country's airspace is safe for the travelling public, the government must not relent until total success has been achieved.
'It is the responsibility of the government to make our airspace safe, and all those involved, especially the regulatory agencies, must not relent until that safety has been achieved. This is the best way to immortalize all those who have lost their lives in avoidable plane crashes over the years,' the party said
