Fani-kayode Blows Own Trumpet As Ex-aviation Minister


Former minister of aviation, Femi-Fani Kayode, has praised himself in his former role, saying he must have done something right in stopping plane crashes.
Mr Fani-Kayode was appointed aviation minister on November 7, 2006, and left the position on May 29, 2007, at the expiration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s tenure.
Fani-Kayode said in a tweet on Tuesday that the year before he became minister witnessed five plane crashes, adding that there was no crash under his watch.
“The year before I became Minister of Aviation there were 5 plane crashes with the loss of 453 lives. When I became Minister the planes stopped crashing. There was not one crash under my watch. When I left the Ministry planes started crashing again. I must have done something right!” he said.
The most recent major plane crash in the country occurred on June 3, 2012, involving a McDonnell Douglas MD-83 passenger plane, 5N-RAM, operated by Dana Air from Abuja to Lagos.
All 146 passengers and seven crew members were killed. Six victims were found inside the buildings that were hit by the plane.
