ETHIOPIAN AIRLINE CONDEMN FALSE MEDIA REPORT ON AIRLINE MISHAP


…AS OBASANJO REACTS


The management of Ethiopian Airlines have condemned the wrong reportage given to the incident that happened today at the Lagos airport involving Ethiopian Flight (ET 901/29 MAY) wherein ex-President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and others were reported to have escaped death. 

According to a more authentic report, the management claims that the Ethiopian Airline Flight (ET 901/29 MAY) which departed from Addis Ababa on its way to Lagos, had encountered bad weather during landing and made a go-around the airport for better and smooth landing, according to the procedure.

On a second attempt, it made a safe and normal landing. According to safety standard, pilots are encouraged to make a similar go-around in such cases. However; some media incorrectly reported this standard safety precautionary go-around.

Also lending credence to the recklessness in the initial sensational reportage of the airline incident today, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo is said to have confirmed that he was not involved in any airline mishap whatsoever today or in any recent time.

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo who spoke through his spokesperson, Kehinde Akinyemi on BBC Yoruba, said Obasanjo had been in his home in Abeokuta, Ogun State, and that the former president never traveled.
