Chief Executive of Aviators Africa, Toni Ukachukwu said his firm had already contacted leaders across Africa together especially the political leadership to discuss on the teething challenges and proffer effective solutions that would stand the test of time.

Ukachukwu said that the theme of the event is apt because as it stands, there is quite little or no corporate governance in African aviation and the event is set to bring it to the fore.
