The Minister of State (Aviation) Senator Hadi Sirika said the recent sack of directors in the aviation sector was not connection with fallouts of the unscheduled visit by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to the Lagos international airport.
Prof. Osinbajo had on Thursday February 23rd, 2017, in company of the Sirika, undertaken an inspection visit to the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos. The visit was to assess state of facilities at the nation’s number one airport, and to see possible areas of immediate attention.
Shortly after the visit, the minister approved some reorganization in the Nigerian Civil Aviation of Authority (NCAA) which saw all 10 directors relieved of their appointments. Three directors would later be reinstated.
Three new directors were also announced for the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
A statement signed by Mr. James Odaudu, the Deputy Director, Press on behalf of the minister said “the link between the two events has no basis, as the reorganisation in the agencies is part of an ongoing process to reposition them to properly and adequately carry out their regulatory mandates.”
