According to Anasi, who was represented at the event by the director of human resource Mr. Uwem Akangson said, NAMA will ensure the improvement in the payment of severance benefits and past service rights to retired staff and engagement of contracts.

Anasi appealed to the Air Traffic controllers to always appreciate and accommodate other stakeholders in the industry as they all played equal role in the system.

While explaining that the entire air traffic control work in the country was handled by 300 Controllers, he commended them for good job.

Anasi said it was the reason why closer attention was being paid to them for better performance and called on the ATCs to always seek ways of internally settling issues affecting their working environment stressing  that all misunderstanding should be settled amicably without externalizing them.

Anasi said the management of the agency was desirous of strengthening the ties and relationship between NATCA and the management which was geared towards effective communication and better working relationship to bridge the gap that existed before now.
