The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), yesterday, appealed to air passengers nationwide to show restraints as they express displeasure over the current spate of flight delays and cancellations caused by scarcity of aviation fuel.

NCAA said while protests are understandable, destroying public properties at airports cannot be justified.

Spokesman of the agency, Sam Adurogboye, appealed for calm, as he gave assurance that the Federal Government is working to ensure the scarcity of on fuel abates.

Adurogboye said the call for restraints became necessary due to reports of passengers’ rage and violence from some of the nation’s airports in the last few days. “In some cases, irate passengers resorted to wanton destruction of facilities at the airports.”

He said: “The government is already engaging all stakeholders involved with the procurement and distribution of aviation fuel, to ensure availability.”
