Anasi says agency is not challenged by lack of substantive MD

Acting Managing Director of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Engr. Emma Anasi has denied any inactivity in the agency stating that the agency was not going through any difficulty due to the absence of a substantive Managing Director.

He made this known in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, when Airspace Managers across the nation’s airports under the aegis of Airspace Managers’ Forum met and  threw their weight behind him.

Speaking at this year’s first quarter Airspace Manager’s Forum the chairman of the forum, Mr Gabriel Akpen commended the new management for making sure that navigational infrastructure across the country are working optimally, even as he lauded efforts of management in building capacity of critical personnel within the agency through training and retraining of staff.

Acting Managing Director of NAMA, Engr. Anasi who spoke earlier had expressed gratitude to the Airspace Managers for ensuring safety of air navigation in their various domains, stressing the need to “transparently and broadly review our processes and administrative structures at every level” to enhance efficiency of service delivery.

Engr. Anasi had also denounced some media reports to the effect that the agency was going through some challenges due to the absence of a substantive Managing Director.

While assuring airspace managers that NAMA remained committed to the delivery of uninterrupted air navigation services across the nation’s airspace, Anasi said “this is reinforced by the fact that all our navigational facilities across the country have remained serviceable and are performing at optimal levels,” stressing that “we recently calibrated our navigational aids and also successfully completed the ICAO Audit within the period of this present management.”

The NAMA boss affirmed that  both operational and administrative processes in the agency are going on seamlessly, even as he enjoined journalists to” balance their stories very well by verifying facts before rushing to press.”

The visit to Adamawa State afforded Engr. Anasi and his management team the opportunity to inspect the agency’s navigational facilities at Yola airport and as well as the TRACON Radar Site at Numan. The team also paid a courtesy call on the Lamido Adamawa, Barkindo Aliyu Mustapha who commended NAMA “for ensuring safety and security of air travel in the country.”

Someone comes in and puts a policy that might favour the industry and when he leaves another comes in and changes it all. Investors like certainty, people want to know what happens in two years time, in five years. Bringing in a new person should not mean the policy should change. Policies must be codified so no matter who comes in, he or she tows the path and continues instead of changing things around.
