“We are confident that this collaboration will be beneficial to all stakeholders and the public at large as it concerns the enhancement of safety within the navigable airspace of Nigeria,” NCAA’s letter to the industry read in part.

It is expected that concerned stakeholders would cooperate with the consultant in the interest of safer skies and all payments accruing to the Authority on account of the attendant services are to be made directly to NCAA and not to the Consultant.

The NCAA said it would continue to ensure strict compliance with safety regulations and violations would be viewed seriously.
