It keeps the museum as one of Nigeria's best kept secrets, when it should be thronging with school children finding out about the wonders of their cultural heritage.</span><br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Uv9N8v2We_w/UDtYMc6l5RI/AAAAAAAADx4/rJS-XoDszaw/s1600/esie4.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="448" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Uv9N8v2We_w/UDtYMc6l5RI/AAAAAAAADx4/rJS-XoDszaw/s640/esie4.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br /></div>Jeremynoreply@blogger.com5tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8686769.post-86623490248236910622012-08-20T23:49:00.001+01:002012-08-20T23:55:32.532+01:00Prose poem for Eid Mubarak<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">In the local park, hundreds are out in their finery.

GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN, GCFR<br /><br />THE PRESIDENT, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA<br /><br />State House<br /><br />Aso Rock<br /><br />ABUJA.<br /><br /><br />Your Excellency Sir,<br /><br />REQUEST FOR A PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO THE DANA AIR CRASH<br /><br />We the undersigned representatives of N-Katalyst, a non-partisan network of individuals from diverse sectors committed to the promotion of Nigerian unity and progressive change, hereby request the establishment of a publicly accessible and representative inquiry into the Dana Air crash of June 3, 2012.<br /><br />Background and Purpose<br />The aircraft, a McDonnell Douglas 83 (MD83) with Registration Number 5N-RAM and 153 people on board departed Abuja for Lagos in the afternoon of June 3 but crashed five minutes to landing at Iju-Ishaga, a densely populated neighbourhood in Agege Local Government Area of Lagos. All the 153 passengers on board were reportedly killed as well as unverified number of persons on ground. The fallen aircraft destroyed several buildings and rendered a good number of others uninhabitable by the force of the impact on earth surface. Environmental experts have also reported possible emission of radioactive materials in the neighbourhood.<br /><br />Available information from insider sources and passengers who have flown in the aircraft before the incident suggests that it ought not to have been in service on that day and in fact should have been retired on account of incessant engine faults if the oversight agencies as well as the airline had been steadfast with maintaining aviation safety standards, although the Dana Air disputes these claims.<br /><br />Therefore, an open and accessible public Inquiry will help in ascertaining what really caused the crash and resultant deaths and destruction of property by investigating the immediate and remote causes and bringing to justice any persons or corporates found culpable. <br /><br />Chronology of major Air Crashes in Nigeria<br /><br />Nigeria has experienced one too many crashes resulting to mass deaths in the last twenty years and all the aircrafts involved were registered and operated in the country, which calls into question how serious we take aviation safety and security:<br /><br />1. &nbsp; &nbsp;September 26, 1992 - A Nigerian Air Force C-130 crashed minutes after taking off from Lagos airport. Around 200 people died.<br />2. &nbsp; &nbsp;June 25, 1995 - A Harka Airlines Soviet-era Tupolev Tu-134 crashed at Lagos airport, killing 15 people.<br />3. &nbsp; &nbsp;November 13, 1995 - A Nigeria Airways Boeing 737 crashed on landing in Kaduna, killing nine people.<br />4. &nbsp; &nbsp;November 7, 1996 - A Boeing 727 operated by Nigeria's ADC Airlines crashed on its way from Port Harcourt to Lagos. All 142 passengers and nine crew died.<br />5. &nbsp; &nbsp;May 4, 2002 - A Nigerian EAS Airlines BAC 1-11 crashed in Kano. At least 148 people were killed, 75 on the plane and at least 73 on the ground.<br />6. &nbsp; &nbsp;October 22, 2005 - A Nigerian Bellview Airlines Boeing 737 airliner crashed shortly after take-off from Lagos. All 111 passengers and six crew were killed.<br />7. &nbsp; &nbsp;December 10, 2005 - A Nigerian Sosoliso Airlines DC9 from Abuja crashed on landing in Port Harcourt, killing 106 people, half of them schoolchildren on their way home for Christmas.<br />8. &nbsp; &nbsp;September 17, 2006 - Twelve Nigerian military personnel, mostly high-ranking officers, were killed in a plane crash in Benue state. Six survived.<br />9. &nbsp; &nbsp;October 29, 2006 - An ADC airliner with 114 passengers on board crashed and burned after take-off from Abuja, killing 96 people.<br />10. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; June 3, 2012 - A Dana Air passenger plane carrying 153 people crashed in the Agege suburb of Lagos, killing everyone on board and an unconfirmed number on ground.<br /><br />It is disheartening to note that the standard response of the Government of Nigeria (GON) to all these aforementioned crashes was to set up secretive technical investigation panels whose reports were apparently neither made public nor acted upon. In a way, these technical panels became a tunnel through which successive governments ran away from their responsibility of making Nigerian airspace safe and secure for all stakeholders.<br /><br />Your government is in a historic position to break this vicious cycle of public deceit if it heeds our request to convene a public inquiry into the crash.<br /><br />Possible Terms of Reference<br /><br />The Panel should among other things look into the following as part of its Terms of Reference (ToR):<br /><br />a. &nbsp; Investigate and determine the cause of the crash and examine contributory factors;<br />b. &nbsp; Examine what regulatory guidelines, instructions and orders were applicable and whether they were complied with;<br />c. &nbsp; &nbsp;Determine the state of serviceability of the aircraft and relevant equipment;<br />d. &nbsp; Establish the level of training, relevant competences and qualifications of the crew members involved in the crash;<br />e. &nbsp; &nbsp;Ascertain if search and rescue facilities were fully available, utilized and functioned correctly;<br />f. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Ascertain the number of people on ground that lost their lives and value of property destroyed at the site of the crash.<br />g. &nbsp; Assess any health and safety at work and environmental protection implications to the residents of the area in which the crash occurred.<br />h. &nbsp; &nbsp;Determine and comment on any broader contributory factors or causes including, management, oversight, maintenance culture and resources.<br />i. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Make appropriate recommendations.<br /><br /><br />We request that the membership of the panel should be broadly representative including members of non-governmental human rights organizations and Nigerian Bar Association (NBA). This is to ensure transparency and accountability.<br /><br />We look forward to a favourable and timely response to our request in order to take advantage of the mood of the moment; provide some assurance to the bereaved that the death of their loved ones will not go in vain; prevent avoidable air mishaps in future and more importantly ensure that the Nigerian airspace is not only safe but complies with international aviation safety standards.<br /><br />We thank you for your kind consideration and attention to our request.<br /><br />Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.<br /><br /><br />Yours faithfully,<br /><br /><br />Dr Jibrin Ibrahim &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Dr Otive Igbuzor<br />Saudatu Mahdi &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Bilkisu Yusuf<br />Ayisha Osori &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Prof Ebere Onwudiwe<br />Yemi Candide-Johnson &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Ayo Obe<br />Saka Azimazi &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Maryam Uwais<br />Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Innocent Chukwuma<br />Chris Kwaja &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Hassan Hussaini<br />Dr A.

He learned at the Pottery Training Centre set up by Michael Cardew in Abuja. He was good, so I asked Michael if he would take him on at Wenford (Cardew’s own workshop in the UK). He did. He thought Danlami was outstanding and arranged for the pots he made there to have a show at the Commonwealth Institute, London. <o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">It was well reviewed in 'Crafts' (Another UK journal for Potters). After Wenford, Danlami went to Farnham College to learn about kiln-building. In the Thesis he wrote at the end of his course, he compared the pottery made at the Training Centre with the pots his mother used to buy locally. This thesis was published whole in ‘Pottery Quarterly’. Out of respect for Michael he gave it to him in person. <o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">On the train to Cornwall, Michael's wife Mariel read it and was so moved by it tears ran down her cheeks, charmed by his simple way of writing and the Africanisms which made it so vivid. Michael read it and was silent. A comment made by Danlami in a spirit of humility, not of criticism, devastated Cardew: “too complicated for us" is what Danlami wrote of the Centre.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">The Training Centre and the fifteen happiest years of Cardews life that he had spent setting it up, were deemed a failure. “Too complicated", those two words haunted me too and fundamentally changed the way I taught when I returned to Nigeria. <o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">By this time, fifteen years after Cardew left, the Abuja training centre was in decline. After a further six years Danlami, having been overseas and now understanding it's significance, together with Umaru his brother and myself, decided to do something about it. We built a new pottery at Maraba, modelled on the original one at Abuja, hoping to recapture the extraordinary spirit it had while Michael was there. It was successful. Danlami stayed longer than I did and gave it a sound basis which enabled it to expand and last twenty years after he left. To this day there are more good throwers (potters) in Maraba than in the rest of Nigeria.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">The other things Danlami did there would be of little interest here, except his ‘regiment’ as he called them, - his fifteen children! To spend a day in his compound was a pleasure, the younger ones were beguiling and so well behaved with inquisitive little faces, the adolescents graceful and friendly. <o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">Danlami is well remembered in the UK when he was a student. He was young and handsome, a joker, popular with everybody. <o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">In Minna, as news of his death spread, crowds filled his compound. People from all walks of life from top civil servants (the Governor sent a representative) to poor potters who - came from Maraba two hundred miles away. He was very well liked and it was a great tribute, but how sad he has gone, he was only 59. What a pity so little of his brush decoration has been seen (and valued). He saw Cardew’s work but his is different. It is so skilful that it is surprising it shows no trace of showmanship, instead it is simple, not the simplicity achieved by minimalism, but by a simplicity of spirit which sings as pure and as natural as a bird's song. Michael Cardew thought him outstanding and so he was.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;">This obituary was written by Micheal O’Brien for ‘Ceramic Review’, a UK
