The spokesman of the House, Hon. Benjamin Kalu who’s affected by the delay told Vanguard Wednesday night that after a long wait of about 12 hours, a promise however from the Azman airline to lift them only at 12:15 am, Thursday, that’s Wednesday midnight.

The lawmakers frowned at the treatment meted out to them and other air travelers.

He said: “12 hours wait for a one-hour flight between Kano and Abuja. All passengers including the House of Reps members are abandoned with no one addressing them or giving them or given a cup of water.

“We got here 12:30 noon and we are told we will be lifted 12:15 am.

“The National Assembly members frown at how their citizens are treated in such delay”, he lamented.
