The Last Flight to Abuja movie crew and marketing team are still in shock by the sad news of the recent crashes of the Allied Air and Dana Air planes in Ghana and Nigeria respectively that has claimed over 160 lives.

“Words cannot even begin to express our sorrow regarding this news, and our thoughts remain with the families of the bereaved and the two nations that have now been plunged into mourning”, explained the movie producer and director Obi Emelonye

Last Flight to Abuja is a movie inspired by the several air disasters that took place in Nigeria in 2006 and with these latest crashes, the issue of air safety in Nigeria, highlighted by the film, remain very important.

“Our first instinct in the light of the plane crashes was to postpone the premiere of the movie as a mark of respect to the people that have lost their lives and their families. But we have carefully considered things and have decided to go on with the premiere, and for Last Flight to Abuja to be dedicated to their memory, but of more importance, we are now considering using this film as a powerful advocacy tool to highlight and influence in our own little way the issues of air safety in Nigeria and Africa at large”, said Obi.
