With 6 years of flight experience, BBN’s Maria reacts to Pere’s comment about using mobile phones during a flight


Maria Chike Benjamin, a former Big Brother Naija contestant, has reacted to Pere Egbi’s statement regarding using cell phones while flying.

After warning Nigerians about the hazards of keeping their phones on during take-off and landing, Pere stirred an internet controversy.

He had tweeted, “Dear Nigerians, when the flight crew says turn off all mobile devices especially during the critical phases of taking off and landing, TURN IT OFF! Those texts and calls can wait! Safety first! Happy Friday!”

Daddy Freeze, a notorious media figure, disagreed, saying that nothing will ever occur to an aeroplane even if someone is on the phone during takeoff or landing.

Maria of BBN has now added her two cents to the debate, agreeing with Daddy Freeze’s position. The former air hostess argued that a phone cannot damage an aircraft at any point during the trip, citing her expertise in the aviation industry.

“As an ex flight attendant for 6 years and a trained basic pilot there’s absolutely nothing that can happen to the aircraft/flight all any stages of the flight, take off, cruise and landing stages. Thank you,” Maria wrote.
