In a bid to further enhance security and safety of the Nigerian civil aviation industry, the agencies in the sector are set to sign a Civil – Military Memorandum of Cooperation with the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).
A statement signed by the Director General of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Capt. Musa Nuhu, said that the memorandum of cooperation would formalise, deepen and strengthen the existing relationship between the two organisations. Nuhu who led the other Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of aviation agencies to the headquarters of NAF in Abuja on Monday, said that the collaboration between civil and military would lead also to the enhancement of airspace security and safety.
Speaking at the courtesy visit, Nuhu said that before now, there had been series of collaborations between civil aviation and the military in the country and appealed to Air Marshall Hassan Abubakar, the Chief of the Air Staff to continue in that trajectory. Nuhu emphasised that when the pact is eventually signed, it would become a landmark development between the civil aviation and the Nigerian air force.
He said: “We are here today in preparatory to signing of the Civil – Military Memorandum of Cooperation with the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).”
