Edo State Government Secures Admission For Stowaway Boy In Top Secondary School

Edo State Government has secured admission in one of the state’s top secondary schools for 13-year-old Daniel Oikhena, who stowed away in the tyre compartment of an Arik Aircraft from Benin to Lagos on Saturday August 24, this year.
According to Governor Oshiomhole

“He is an intelligent young man with uncommon challenges, but one that has a vision. We had him examined by people who should know and the result confirmed that he is normal”.
“This incident was probably the kind of trigger that we needed to improve the facilities at our Airports.   You are never going to have all the money you need to do all you have to do.  You should start from somewhere”.
“It is also a security issue that we do not have any runway security lights at the Benin Airport.  It is a security issue because a plane can take off and it is flying to Benin airspace and it has mechanical faults and it cannot land.
“Politically, there could be an emergency in Edo State and the President needed to visit and he cannot land at the airport at night. You cannot spend the kind of money you are spending on remodeling and the little one you have to do is to ice the cake and you have a complete project.  You should take this as something more urgent”.
