John Ojikutu said : “If outdated infrastructure and claims about insufficient skilled controllers are true, then flight operations can be endangered. If flight operations are endangered, that might account for the reason foreign airlines are avoiding our airspace and not necessarily the high cost of our charges. What I personally heard is sufficient to determine how far I can fly over our airspace, if after 200 nautical miles you are blind, deaf and dumb on radio communication,” External link

John Ojikutu said : ”This incident happened on the busy express road in a country supposedly to have lifted or rescued a very important person out of a dangerous area. “It appears to me that nobody is looking at the security implications in the midst of insecurity. “Not even the NCAA and NAMA have come out whether the chopper was duly cleared. This is is very dangerous trend that needs immediate investigation ” External link

John Ojikutu said : “If after 23 days a report that involved damage to one of the engines of an airline aircraft was made to the NCAA and the NCAA and the airline still considered it unnecessary to inform or refer the incident to the AIB for investigation, that act is criminal and culpable. This industry can not continue to be governed by carelessness and recklessness of some persons without regards for the safety of the public. The Federal Ministry of Transport must intervene in this,” External link

John Ojikutu said ( about Peace ) : “The airline,( Air Peace) is not on trial but the method of managing emergency which may not be applicable to it alone but needs to be reviewed. The emergency management method was approved by the NCAA and could be reviewed because of this incident and because in future, the passengers’ lives depend not only on the reported airline but others that are applying this method” External link

John Ojikutu added : “It would be a waste of public funds to set up a government airline like the former Nigeria Airways not a national carrier. A national carrier which you and I will own about 30 per cent, nurtured by foreign technical partners with about 40 per cent shares, Nigerian credible investors 20 per cent, federal and state governments 10 per cent; this is a national carrier. When the foreign technical partners decide to divest their shares it should be shared between the public, government and credible Nigerian investors” External link

John Ojikutu said ( about Saudi ) : “With what we are hearing now from Saudi Arabia, there are many accomplices among the airport staff and worse still, in security. It is insider’s threat if we take the information from Saudi further the way the Israelis carved the Abdulmutalab case. How did Abdulmutalab get through the airlines pre-passenger screening or how did he get through immigration screening even when he was on government watch list? How many traffickers or domestic terrorists are on the NDLEA, DSS, immigration and FAAN security watch list? How many times is security profiling conducted on the airport staff? The airport security auditors should be looking regularly for the presence of abnormal and absence of normal on the airport staff,” External link
