Nigeria’s President: No More Safety Loopholes

In an address that will hardly inspire you to go fly a Nigerian airline, the country’s president said yesterday that he wants to eliminate safety loopholes that likely lead to the crash that killed more than 100 people over the weekend in Lagos. Said the president, “I have directed the aviation ministry to ensure strict compliance with maintenance and operational requirements and standards for all aircraft in order to plug loopholes and ensure passenger security and safety…”

Uh, what was the aviation ministry doing before when it wasn’t ensuring passenger security and safety?
