Nigeria has implemented 68% AIB safety recommendations- Aviation Co’ttee

Implementation of recommendations from aircraft accidents in Nigeria is usually done on the down low and with this, most times;  people think the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) does not carry out its functions of investigating and coming out with safety recommendations.

However with the declaration of the Chairman of the Ministerial Committee on Nigeria Aviation Industry Aircraft Accident Report Status, Capt Victor Iriobe, the AIB is said to have made 158 safety recommendations from 34 reports with 63 per cent of those recommendations implemented.
Iriobe, who disclosed this while speaking at the Aviation Commits Initiative in Lagos, added that
the committee also discovered in the course of its deliberation and investigation that the current regulation is mainly on commercial operations instead of General Aviation (GA),where there is so much activities.
The committee, he said reviewed safety documents of some countries such as South Africa, Egypt and Morocco that are Nigeria’s peers.
On AIB, the Iriobe-led committee recommended that the accident body’s investigation processes should be reviewed and that the seven man committee should remain to review aircraft accident quarterly.
The committee is made up of stakeholders from Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB), Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) and the Aviation Ministry.

Recall that the Aviation Minister, Chief Osita Chidoka had in November 3, 2014 set up a seven man committee to among other terms of reference, determine all Nigeria aviation industry aircraft accident reports from 2000 till date, do a gap analysis with a view to determine the extent of compliance with all approved recommendations, determine alignment with global aviation industry best practice and to make necessary recommendations on analysis made.
