Nigeria’s Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika has said that the Federal Government of Nigeria will continue to improve on safety and security at the nation’s airports through training and capacity development of staff, in line with the provisions of the International Civil Aviation Organization.

The Minister made this disclosure at the passing out parade for 727 Aviation Security and Aerodrome Rescue and Fire Firefighting Services personnel held in Service Development Centre, Afaka, Kaduna State on Saturday, last week.

 

Hadi Sirika, while admonishing the graduates to put service before everything else, advised that the ability to set priorities will determine the quality of their stewardship, and added “In accepting to be trained as AVSEC and ARFFS cadets, you must realize that it is a privilege for you to serve your country at this level as the aviation industry is one place where adherence and commitment to rules and standards are applied strictly to the latter.”

 

FAAN’s Managing Director, Captain Rabiu Hamisu Yadudu in his goodwill message, advised graduates that as security and firemen in the airports, their commitment to honour, respect and devotion to duty must be second to none, as the career is much more than a job, but a calling.

 

“There is no doubt that the period you have spent during your training has considerably prepared you both in learning and character to become ambassadors of not only your service and Authority, but also that of the country, in the eye of all airport users, both local and foreign.”

 

The occasion was witnessed by the Acting Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Aviation, Engr. Musa Hassan, DG, DSS, DG, NCAA, MD, NAMA, MD, NIMET, Commissioner, AIB, Rector, NCAT, Director of Training DSS, Directors from FAAN and other top government dignitaries.


The event climaxed with the presentation of awards of excellence to those who distinguished themselves in the programme. The awards are in three different categories, for Aviation Security officers, Fire Officers and Parade Commanders.

While re-assuring that FAAN will continue to invest in its human resources, the MD charged the graduates to be committed, dedicated and approach duties assigned them with high sense of responsibility.

    We have the likes of nkiru onyejeocha who kept enjoying our democracy dividends, and using our money to buy praises to her name in the line buying wrapper and rice for her party faithfuls, I thought she boast of attracting federal government attention to her people or is that one part of her political propaganda. Let her come ooo its time to give back to her people.
