It would seem a lot is brewing at the now Ministry of aviation and Aerospace with 10 days left for the current administration to hand over as NigerianFLIGHTDECK has learnt of a massive redeployment, reshuffle exercise and invariably some sacks at various parastatals under the ministry.
Recall the massive hue and cry last month over alleged secret employment by the Senator Hadi Sirika led Ministry of Aviation, which as usual caused an uproar but as usual generated no response.
Sources close to the Ministry revealed to our correspondent that some heads of the parastatals may be relieved of their appointments despite the President signing and gazetting some parastatals Acts, some of which tenured their stay in office.
Case in point, Directors-General of NSIB, the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET)are tenured for five years each and it’s renewable maybe apart from the now DG NSIB, who is in his second tenure already but had transformed from Commissioner Accident Investigation Bureau( AIB) to Director General NSIB.
Some existing directors may also be affected by the impending purge or redeployed to other directorates.
An industry player also stated that Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) could not be removed with fait without a recourse to the Acts that set up the agencies
