Information recently made available to 247ureports.com through sources at the Kano State government house indicate that the governor of Kano State, Malam Rabiu Kwankwaso narrowly escaped the threat of a plane crash on Friday June 8, 2012 as his flight [Lufthansa] aborted the scheduled landing due to power failure at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.
The governor of Kano State was on his way back from his trip to the United States of America [USA] on board a Lufthansa flight headed for Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja. But the flight could not land – had to be re-routed to another airport because the runway lights were not able to be turned on. The power supply to the airport failed causing a blackout at the airport.
The airplane, according to experts, may have not landed safely if allowed to land without the runway lights being on. As a result, the originally scheduled flight of 11am – landed 3pm after the problem was resolved.
247ureports.com reached the chief press secretary to the Kano State Governor, Malam Dantiye concerning the governor’s escape, he responded “contact the airline for the manifest“.
The governor is reported to be presently in Abuja. He was not present for the turbanning of the central bank governor in Kano.
