NSE charges ministers on local content capacity improvement
THE Aeronautic chapter of the Nigerian Society for Engineers (NSE) has called on the Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi and the Minister of State, Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika to support activities that would lead to increased indigenous participation and local content capacity development in the aviation industry.
The Society made this known in separate congratulatory letters to both Ministers and urged them not to rest on their oars in ensuring the total growth of the industry.
In the letters signed by the NSE National Chairman Bola Akinribido and the National Secretary, Patrick Achurefe, the Society hailed the choice of the ministers by President Muhammadu Buhari, noting that there is no debate about their choice since the president has belief in their abilities to move the industry forward.
The letter in part read, ”We are convinced that your appointment is a testimony to your managerial competence and the president’s belief in your ability to move forward the aviation industry in this critical era.”
“We acknowledge your commitment towards promoting a safe, vibrant and efficient aviation industry in Nigeria with your uncompromising attitude on good governance. We therefore commit you to the hands of the Almighty God to strengthen and guide you to success amidst the challenges in your high office.”
“While pledging the full support and cooperation of the NSE, Aeronautic Division, we humbly request that you continue to support us in our activities to promote indigenous participation and local content capacity development in the Nigerian Aviation industry.”
