The use of ‘Ghana Must Go’ travel bags by passengers at airports in Nigeria has been prohibited after many airlines complained about it.
This development came after Ethiopia Airlines wrote to the Regional Manager of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
According to a circular by FAAN, dated November 24, titled, ‘Re: Prohibition of Usage Of Ghana Must Go’, signed by Manager, Airport Services, Henok Gizachew, the ban is particularly for passengers that are travelling through the country’s international airports.
Gizachew stated that the bags were banned by the authority because they had cost the airlines huge losses and also damaged the conveyor belt system of airports.
He stated that passengers who wish to use Ghana Must Go bags to travel must have the bags well packaged in cartons or hardcovers of rectangular size.
The circular reads: “Please be informed that effective November 25, 2023, the use of Ghana Must Go to travel on our flight is hereby prohibited.
“The use of Ghana Must Go as a means of packaging baggage has cost the airlines huge loss and also damaged the conveyer belt system, not only on our flight but also on other foreign airlines, hence the prohibition.”
