Amid media buzz surrounding the status of Ghana-must-go bags, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has clarified that the ban on the ubiquitous “Ghana-must-go” bags was issued by Ethiopian Airlines and not the Federal Government.
FAAN made this clarification in a terse post on its X handle on Friday, responding to a report making the rounds on the ban of “Ghana must go” bags in Nigeria’s Airports.
FAAN, Nigeria’s airport regulatory agency said the purported circular was from Ethiopian Airlines to its customers, “The Ban is from Ethiopian Airlines, not FAAN or the Federal Government of Nigeria”, FAAN posted.
Meanwhile, the circular from Ethiopian Airlines informed its customers of restrictions on the usage of Ghana-must-go bags.
“We would like to inform you of a restriction regarding using irregularly shaped packages on Ethiopian Airlines Flights. It is strictly prohibited to bring “Ghana must go” bags unless they are adequately packed in a carton or hardcover rectangular container”, the circular said.
