Indications have emerged that President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government will soon resume its retrenchment exercise in the agencies under the Aviation Ministry.
Sahara Reporters quoted the Minister of State for Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, saying this on Saturday night during his second Aviation Stakeholders’ Forum in Lagos.
Mr. Sirika explained that there are at least 88 General Managers on Grade Level 17 in the three agencies in the sector, saying that the number is more than what is required.
The agencies to be affected by another round of “proper placement and sack,” according to him, are the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) and Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
He assured that the government will continue to weed out un-required personnel in the system, stressing that President Muhammadu Buhari has already given his approval for proper restructuring to take place in all the agencies.
“In all, we have 88 General Managers in these agencies. Most of them are not required and were just given portfolios. As I’m talking to you now, we have approval for proper restructuring in the agencies. We have started with FAAN. Very soon, we will get to other agencies in the sector.
“But, we have to do it according to the Acts that set up these agencies so that we don’t run into a problem,” he said.
