The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has announced that it has complied with the directive of the Federal Government and relocated its Corporate Headquarters to the nation’s Federal Capital, Abuja.
The agency revealed this in a statement which was obtained by Transport Day.
It would be recalled that the Honourable Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika had in a memo dated 4th May 2020 to all the agencies given an ultimatum for the relocation.
According to the Agency, it was the first to comply with the directive as a way of encouraging others to follow suit.
NCAA’s relocation has seen all its top Management staffers including the Director-General, Directors and other critical members of staff moved to Abuja.
Part of the statement reads, “The importance of the movement is to enhance and facilitate the seamless interface on critical policy issues between the Agency and the parent ministry, the Ministry of Aviation.”
“It is specially intended to bridge the gap between the Agency, the Ministry and other critical organs of the Federal Government in reaching decisions in real-time by eliminating the bottlenecks usually associated with coordination of activities and efforts within and between large organizations, the results of which have already become manifest.”
NCAA also expressed regret at the inconvenience the relocation might cause the general public and stakeholders. It states all correspondences should be sent to the new address.
“The general public is hereby enjoined to henceforth, address all correspondences to our Corporate Headquarters situated at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.”
