The Director General, Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Captain Musa Nuhu has expressed optimism that Nigeria’s aviation industry will experience better performances in 2023.
Capt. Nuhu noted that the sector, having survived the many challenges of 2022, will perform better this year.
He stated this during an inter-religious prayer session held to seek divine intervention for an accident free year in the industry.
The DG, who joined the prayer session held at the NCAA’s (Aviation House) Headquarters Annex Aviation House in Lagos, virtually, charged the staff to continue to be dedicated and committed to duty in the task of facing the challenges ahead.
The prayer session had in attendance both junior and senior officials of the regulatory agency, as Muslim and Christian prayed to beseech God to assist the NCAA in fulfilling its vision and mission for the year.
Prayer were specifically raised on behalf of the management for effective implementation of the new Civil Aviation Act (CAA) which was assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari recently.
Recall that the 2022 CAA repealed the 2006 CAA and captures several developments that had taken place in international civil aviation in the last 16 years.
The new Act has changed the nomenclature of NCAA to Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) without an ‘A’ in Nigeria, while the Director-General is now addressed as DG, Civil Aviation.
