FG Bans Helicopter Shuttling From Kaduna To Abuja

The National Security Adviser, Babagana Munguno, has banned the planned helicopter shuttle service from Kaduna to Abuja by some helicopter companies.



In a memo banning the move, Munguno said, “In view of the closure of the airport, air travelers will be required to travel by road/train to Abuja from Kaduna International Airport. This will undoubtedly cause constraints on the movement of some passengers who will aim to travel using other means, notably the use of commercial ferry helicopters.

“Please be reminded that the airspace over the Federal Capital Territory Abuja is controlled and only security flights or those with the requisite security clearance from the Presidency are granted overhead clearance for obvious security reasons. Consequently, you are to note and ensure that no charter or commercial helicopter ferry flights are allowed to fly within Abuja airspace.”

I really hope they will stick to the six weeks cos that KD road is a death trap -from the careless drivers to bad road - and I'm talking from experience. Don't know about now sha.
Which train are they talking about? Is it the same one that someone came on social media to complain about its over crowdedness. OK nah....

Buhari is back, say hello to difficult policies that don't favour d citizens. So nobody knew this before Abuja airport was shut down? What happened to increasing the security protocol so that miscreants are detected early, rather than banning people that can afford to escape the long if not dangerous journey by road.
OK, it wasn't Buhari directly, ehn but na im brother...

Anonymous said...

this is nonsensical breach of our right to freedom of movement. governmet negligence and incompetence brought about this dire situation yet government will not allow people to find ways of ameliorating the hardship it caused. so Buhari is the only human being in this jungle allowed to fly in helicopter while every other person is an animal with no similar rights.

APC and their stupid policies, Abuja/kaduna road is a death trap, the Kaduna airport is hell, no ATM, no pos, nothing works at that kindergarten airport, people were kidnapped on that road last week, some idiots are trying too hard to be seeing as working.

This is a typical example of how the incompetence of Nigerian authorities and the paranoia/overzealousNess of security forces causes unnecessary hardship. So because you are clueless and woefully unable to control something, you just ban it in a dictorial fashion? Don't helicopter flights operate in Washington DC, London, Moscow etc? Why not allocate flight paths and monitor them? And some people are here defending this lunacy? Some people actually deserve a chaotic government of untold hardship

In other seats of government
