The House of Representatives yesterday called on the Federal Government to revoke the license of Dana Airlines following a probe of the Dana airliner MD 83 crash which killed 153 persons in Lagos in June. MPs unanimously adopted the report of the National Assembly joint committee on crash which also recommended that the Director General of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) Dr. Harold Demuren be relieved of his post and face prosecution.
"Dana current Air Operating Certificate (AOC) should be revoked because it was not issued in compliance with the NCAA civil regulations guideline 2009"
Also, the House passed resolution stopping the ministry of aviation or any other agency or persons from interfering with the autonomy of NCAA.
The House also called on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to recover the N35.5 billion which was extended to Air Nigeria owned by business mogul Jimoh Ibrahim through UBA which "was diverted for other uses".
It also called for the re-opening of investigation on the report of Bellview Airlines and other accident investigation reports.
