Aftermath tsunami: FG to make Nike Aboderin Director, Finance FAAN

LAST week’s tsunami that affected no fewer than 22 Directors and General Managers at the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), may have thrown some new people in the mix to be directors and general managers in that agency.

Investigations by Nigerianflightdeck.com reveals that some names have already been penciled down to take over positions in FAAN, including a member of the President’s 2015 Transition Committee, Mrs Nike Aboderin who is coming in as Director, Finance.

It was gathered that since June when the restructuring and redeployment of staff in FAAN was reported, government was already looking for people it could trust to man key positions and help block leakages.

However, our medium learnt that as at three weeks ago, Mrs Aboderin had been employed by the Ministry of Aviation and has been issued her letter.

Our source cannot confirm yet but tells Nigerianflightdeck.com that another has been employed in FAAN as Director, Commercial.

Mrs. Nike Aboderin, was a member of President Muhammed Buhari’s Transition committee in 2015 and is also a representative of the private sector on the transition committee.

Her private sector experience was majorly in the banking sector where she rose to the position of Group Head, Large Corporates at Skye Bank Plc in 2014. She also had a stint at Citibank Nigeria.

She was Special Adviser to the Ogun State governor between July 2011 and August 2014. She was a member of the executive council and was responsible for the trade and investment portfolio, reporting directly to the governor.

She was once Head, Treasury/ Financial Services of Premium Securities Ltd. (FBN (Merchant) Bank Ltd.)

Recall that Federal government following recommendations by the Presidential Committee chaired by the Head of Service, Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita, is restricting the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) with demotion, sack or redeployment of certain personnel who were brought into FAAN without qualification or required experience and yet were given key managerial position have been reviewed as a result of the work done by the committee.

International Operations: Senate heeds Onyema’s call, set to probe multiple designation

Let me make this clear, Air Peace will never be able to combat international aero-politics without the support of the government. We can only combat it if our government supports us. It is a shame that several Nigeria airlines have come here (Dubai) and they were pushed out either through unfair competition or some arm-twisting tactics, it is very unfair. The only plan we have is the plan of sustainability, to sustain our operations to the best of our abilities. That is so far as we can go, if we are not supported. So Air Peace needs the support of everybody.
