To unlock opportunities in the aviation industry, the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority has signed the Civil Aviation Masterplan (CAMP) with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
The Director General of Civil Aviation Nigeria, Captain Musa Nuhu, and ICAO Secretary General, Juan Carlos Salaazar, signed the agreement during a visit to ICAO in Montreal, Canada, with a promise that the masterplan would unlock opportunities in the Nigerian aviation industry.
“This is a major step in repositioning the nation’s aviation industry to attain its full potential and make significant contributions to the nation’s economic growth and development,” Nuhu said.
He stated that all relevant stakeholders within and outside the aviation sector would be involved in developing and implementing CAMP.
In another development, Nuhu with his counterpart in the Republic of Benin, Karl Legba, have signed the Aeronautical Search and Rescue (SAR) memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the two countries.
Nuhu said the long-overdue MoU would enhance the safety of flight operations in the region.
Also signed were the SAR agreements between Nigeria and Togo in Lome.
Nuhu and his Togolese counterpart, Col. Latta Gnama, signed the pact on behalf of the two countries.
The NCAA boss disclosed that more SAR MoU would be signed with neighboring countries in the next few weeks.
