Airline Operators of Nigeria fears category-one aviation certification may be withdrawn

Airline Operators of Nigeria,AON, has said Nigeria may lose the Category-One certification in aviation sector, if the Civil Aviation Act of 2006, which is still in operation was jettisoned for the new policy introduced by the Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah.

AON also called on President Goodluck Jonathan to scrap the aviation ministry and grant Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, full autonomy to run the sector in line with international standard, even as it called on the Senate to set up a committee to probe airport projects across the country to ascertain if the huge sums put into the projects were commensurate with the level of work done.

The Deputy Secretary General of AON, Alhaji Mohammed Tukur, disclosed this in a chat with Vanguard, stressing that the existing Act 2006 complied strictly with aviation regulation globally.
