The Commissioner/CEO of Accident Investigation Bureau, Nigeria (AIB-N), Engr. Akin Olateru, has charged staff of the Agency to make diligence, focus and integrity their watchword in the year 2020, just as he promised to make investment in personnel development and welfare, the refinement of procedures and processes, a priority in the new year.


In his New Year message to staff, he thanked them for their contributions to the achievements of the Agency, asking them not to rest on their oars as there is still much work to do.


“As we start a new year, I invite us to reflect on the successes and accolades of the past years.
Take a moment to congratulate yourselves, individually and corporately, for your contribution to the realisation of these goals and successes. You certainly deserve it, and as your Commissioner and CEO, I applaud each and every one of you, and thank you for your service. We bear the burden of a huge responsibility in matters which are always of National importance and often of the highest sensitivity to the parties concerned.


“It is our responsibility to ensure that, as far as it is possible, we help to keep air transportation safe, and transporters accountable. It is our core mandate to investigate occurrences in relation to air transportation and to make an accurate determination, in order to prevent their recurrence and to mitigate any undesirable after effects. We cannot and must not, therefore, rest on our laurels.


“Each one of you forms a significant part of the larger value chain. There is always work to be done and room for improvement and growth. We must each constantly self evaluate, take stock and re-evaluate our individual performances, to identify areas in which we could do better, and in preparation for any challenges which lie ahead”, he said.


Olateru added that it is essential for the staff to forge ahead with a greater sense of purpose, focus, and a clearer understanding of the role that they play in this critical quest, urging them to be more determined and committed to the delivery of the high quality standards which are required in our industry.


“I offer you my firm assurance that, in my drive for excellence, investment in personnel development and welfare will continue to be a priority as is, too, the refinement of our procedures and processes. It is my view that job satisfaction, equity and fairness are pivotal to high quality service delivery.


“As we look to the future, I implore you all to intensify your efforts and dedication to serve. In our effort to continuously build a world class and an enviable institution, this year, our watch/key words must be Focus, Diligence and Integrity. Once again I thank you for your service and commitment, I appreciate you all greatly and wish you and your families the very best that Two Thousand and Twenty has to offer”.
