Aviation Perm Sec lauds Kano Safe Tower project
THE Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Aviation, Hajia Binta Bello has expressed great satisfaction over the high technical capacity of the completed Kano Safe Project at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport (MAKIA), Kano.
Bello who was at the airport for the final inspection of the completed Digital Safe Tower ahead of its commissioning also commended the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), for ensuring that the project was delivered promptly in keeping with the agreed timelines, stressing that the effort of the agency in maintaining safety of air navigation in Nigeria would be boosted by the sophisticated standard of the facility.
“This is very encouraging. I am highly impressed that the facility has been delivered within the period agreed with the ministry and I am happy to say that we have achieved what we bargained for within the scheduled time…other project managers should emulate this one. They have delivered a good job and on time too”, the Permanent Secretary said.
The P.S., who observed Air Traffic Controllers as they controlled traffic live, using the facility was particularly thrilled that the entire process was purely digital and simple, without the use of paper strips as was the case with the old tower.
