We have the Technical Capacity to Secure Airspace – NAMA

2 Min Read

Nigerian Airspace Management Agency has said that the agency is capable of protecting the nation’s airspace over the Gulf of Guinea.

NAMA’s acting General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs. Olajumoke Adetona, told the News Agency of Nigeria that a series of meeting between Nigeria and Ghana were ongoing in Dakar, the capital of Senegal, and in Ghana to ensure a smooth takeover.

Adetona while speaking with NAN on the telephone said “Discussions and meeting are ongoing among the relevant stakeholders in Dakar, Senegal and in Ghana. They are working on the modalities that will lead to a smooth takeover. This issue is not something new in the industry but President Muhammadu Buhari only gave us the go-ahead to ensure the process is smooth and quickened.

“We don’t need to buy any airspace equipment for the area. It is still the same airspace equipment such as communication, navigation and surveillance facilities that will be deployed when the process is completed. The agency doesn’t need to acquire any airspace equipment for us to provide airspace service in the Gulf of Guinea.

“It doesn’t have to do with airspace equipment because prior to the meeting we had with the President, there had been a series of meetings with our partners and the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority.”
