The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has commissioned new Category II Instrument Landing System (ILS) at the Benin airport in the Edo State capital.
Capt. Fola Akinkuotu, Managing Director, NAMA, says the new installation is in line with an earlier pledge by the Agency to upgrade navigational infrastructure in strategic airports across the country in a bid to boost socio-economic activities in such areas.
Capt. Akinkuotu also announces that the Agency had equally installed and commissioned the ILS at Port Harcourt airport which was damaged by an aircraft last year, saying that the newly installed landing aids are operating at optimal capacity. He also hints that the installation of CAT II ILS would commence at Maiduguri, Jos and Minna airports in the northern parts of the country.
Furthermore, Capt. Akinkuotu informed staff that in line with management’s objective to maintain a healthy and productive workforce, the agency had concluded plans to enroll NAMA into the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) in the next two months just as he assured them that the issue of review of Condition of Service (COS) was being handled and would soon be concluded by government.
The NAMA boss expresses gratitude to Management and Staff of the Agency for the support and cooperation accorded him over the past two years of his administration, saying that whatever successes his administration has recorded could not have been without the individual and collective efforts of NAMA Staff. He enjoins them to “put in more effort to move NAMA to the next level,” stressing that the Agency would recognize hard work by giving special awards to deserving members of Staff.
