The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), through its managing director, Saleh Dunoma, at the just concluded 24th Airports Council International (ACI) Africa Annual Assembly, Regional Conference and Exhibition in Hammamet, Tunisia, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with (ACI) , for the training of Staff of the Authority by ACI.
This capacity building exercise is in line with the Authority’s resolve to further equip and widen the intellectual capacity of staff with new trends in the aviation industry.
According to Dunoma, training of operational staff had become inevitable because, globally, safety had become a major concern that needed to be addressed urgently, through the re-awakening of staff consciousness in ensuring safety and security at our airports.
This is aside from the fact that the ACI training is in compliance with the recommended practise of International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
He commended the Airports Council International for the initiative on Airports Excellence in Safety (APEX) programme.
