NCAA partners NAPTIP to combat human trafficking

DIRECTOR General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Capt. Muhtar Usman has assured the National Agency for Prohibition of Traffic In Person (NAPTIP) of the Authoritys unflinching support in its fight against the scourge of human trafficking in Nigeria.

This assurance was given by Capt. Muhtar Usman when he received a high-powered NAPTIP delegation led by its Director General, Dame Julie Okah-Donli on an advocacy visit today, Monday, June 10th, 2019.

According to Dame Okah-Donli, it has become very imperative to embark on the visit to the NCAA as the regulator of the aviation industry in Nigeria, since young Nigerians are lured out of the country through the airports which is a major exit point.

She said the visit will enable the two government agencies chart a course to successfully stamp out human trafficking from Nigeria.

Dame Okah-Donli therefore implored NCAA to during its oversight responsibilities over all aviation agencies to ensure that airlines are mandated to fulfill part of their obligations under the Trafficking In Persons (Prohibition) Enforcement and Administration Act, 2015.

The DG NAPTIP presented some of the sensitization materials developed for the aviation industry for review and validation by the Authority before its implementation.

She added that a workshop to engage relevant operators in the industry is forthcoming.

While responding to the visiting team, the DG NCAA, Capt. Muhtar Usman promised on behalf of the Authority and other aviation agencies to assist NAPTIP in achieving its mandate of stopping the menace from Nigeria.

Capt. Usman assured that the NCAA while discharging its regulatory functions will ensure all airline operators adhere to the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig. CARs) at all times. He promised to review and validate the documents he received from the body.
