FAAN Debunk ‘Ghana Must Go’ Ban Claim

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) dismissed claims that it had banned the use of matted woven bags, popularly known as Ghana-Must-Go by travellers.

The agency in a tweet on Friday, said Ethiopia Airlines issued a prohibition of the use of Ghana-Must-Go bags on their flight, not FAAN or the federal government.

It would be recalled that a section of the media had reported that FAAN had placed a ban on the use of Ghana-Must-Go bags at the airport nationwide.

While sharing a circular from Ethiopia Airline to that effect, FAAN tagged various online platforms debunking these claims to its name.

The memo from Ethiopia Airlines read: “Dear valued passengers, we would like to inform you of a restriction regarding the usage of 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.

“This restriction has been implemented due to the frequent occurrence of damages to conveyor belts at various airports, resulting in significant costs incurred by the airlines involved.

“We kindly request your cooperation in complying with this rule to ensure the smooth operation of our flights and to minimize any potential disruptions caused by damaged conveyor belts.

“We appreciate your understanding and continued support in adhering to these guidelines.

“Thank you for choosing Ethiopian Airlines.”
