Shake up!!! NCAA terminates 11 appointments

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority [NCAA] has sacked 11 people from its employ including three Special Assistants to the erstwhile Honourable Minster of Aviation, Mr. Osita Chidoka who were domiciled with the regulatory agency. 
In a statement released by the Acting General manager Public Relations, Sam Adurogboye,  the NCAA  had carried out some levels of restructuring within itself with a view to enhance efficiency in service delivery and safe flight operations in and out of the nation airspace.

 

The exercise involved the termination forthwith of the contract appointments of eight [8] officers whose contract were to run consecutively for four [4] years contrary to the provision of the rules of tenure on contract appointment. 
Consequently, competent and skilled officers from the affected Directorates /Departments have accordingly been re- assigned to fill the affected positions. 
Also terminated were the appointments of three [3] Special Assistants to the erstwhile Honourable Minster of Aviation who were domiciled with NCAA. Their appointment ceased with the end of the tenure of the Honourable Minister who engaged their services as stipulated by the rules. 
It is pertinent to point out that the management decision to carry out this exercise is in conformity with extant rules on tenure of contract appointment and in line with NCAA condition of service.
The Authority has put in place plans to train staffers of the Authority for the purpose of succession and take over from existing ageing workforce in its service. 
The Authority assure members of the flying public of its commitment to the onerous oversight responsibilities of the industry in order that safe flight operations in the country is guaranteed at all times. This informed its zero tolerance to violation of safety regulations. 

 

Only recently, NCAA performed creditably well in the International Civil Aviation Organisation [ICAO] Aviation Security Audit and has also just concluded the stakeholders conference for the consideration of amendments to the draft Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations [NCARs] in conformity to the international standards.
