President Muhammadu Buhari will today host the United Nations (UN) International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) boss, Dr. Olumuyiwa Aliu, at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, as the ICAO leader rounds off his one week official visit to Nigeria.

The ICAO President had in the course of the tour held talks with the Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, whose ministry oversees the aviation sector as well as top officials of the Foreign Affairs Ministry. Olumuyiwa, a Nigerian, began his visit to the country last Wednesday during which he inspected a number of aviation-related projects and facilities.

Meanwhile, the visiting ICAO president has stressed the need for aviation agencies in the country to imbibe the development of human capacity building.

Speaking while addressing union members from Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) and National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) and heads of aviation parastatals in Abuja, Aliu said there was need for constant training to match the pace of technological development.

According to Dr Aliu, with all the facilities and navigational aids in place without a trained workforce, there will be no development.
