All Aviation Agency Directors Axed Following FAAN and NAMA MDs’ Dismissals

December 14, 2023







The ministry of aviation and aerospace development has announced the dismissal of all heads of aviation agencies from their offices.

Odutayo Oluseyi, the spokesperson for Festus Keyamo, minister of aviation and aerospace development, disclosed their dismissal in a statement on Thursday.

According to the statement, the government directed the affected directors to hand over to the most senior officers in their various directorates.

The development comes less than 24 hours after President Bola Tinubu sacked Kabir Mohammed as the managing director (MD) of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) as well as Tayib Odunowo as the MD of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA).

“Following the change in the leadership of the aviation and aerospace development agencies’ CEOs and MDs aimed to reposition the Aviation industry and ensure safety and efficient air travel experience by Nigerians in line with the Renewed Hope agenda of Mr. President, I am directed to inform all DIRECTORS of the following agencies that they have been relieved of their appointments forthwith and should hand over to the most senior officer in their various directorates with immediate effect,” the statement said  

The directors of the affected agencies include the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, Nigeria Metrological Agency, Nigeria Airspace Management Agency, Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), and Nigeria Safety and Investigation Bureau (NSIB).

“I am also to inform all the agencies’ Board Secretaries and Legal Advisers that they are not affected by this directive,” the ministry said. 

The ministry also instructed all affected directors to ensure strict compliance.
