Keyamo Reshuffles Aviation Agencies

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has instructed the Directors of key agencies under the ministry to hand over their duties to the most senior officers.
The directive, outlined in a statement signed by the ministry’s spokesperson, Odutayo Oluseyi, on Thursday in Abuja, specifically targets agencies such as the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Nigeria Meteorological Agency (NiMET), Nigeria Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), and Nigeria Safety and Investigation Bureau (NSIB).
The sweeping changes come on the heels of President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope agenda for the nation, with a particular focus on repositioning the aviation industry to enhance safety and ensure an efficient air travel experience for Nigerians.
The directive reads:
“I am directed to inform all directors of the following agencies that they have been relieved of their appointments forthwith and should hand over to the most senior officer in their various directorates with immediate effect.”
The affected agencies’ directors, including those of FAAN, NiMet, NAMA, NCAA, and NSIB, have been directly impacted by the directive. However, the statement clarified that the agencies’ Board Secretaries and Legal Advisers are not affected by this restructuring.
The sweeping changes align with President Tinubu’s recent decision to approve the suspension, removal, and replacement of various Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) and heads of agencies under the Federal Ministry of Aviation and Aerospace Development. This move underscores the commitment to revitalizing the aviation sector and ensuring it aligns with the strategic objectives of the administration.
