BREAKING: Buhari Makes 33 Fresh Appointments Few Days To Exit (Full List)

The Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has approved the appointment of about 33 new directors in agencies under the Ministry of Aviation and Aerospace.

In a statement, Tuesday, signed by the Head, Press and Public Affairs, Ministry of Aviation and Aerospace, Odatayo Oluseyi, the new appointments are to help reposition the Agencies to perform their statutory duties as enshrined in the Acts and help to address appropriate placements, Federal character requirements.


“The statement highlighted some of the modifications as: “The creation of new Directorates in some of the Agencies prominent amongst which are the Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, Corporate Services and Aviation Security Directorates.

“The creation of the Public Affairs and Consumer Protection Directorate is to put the Agencies on their toes in terms of adequately addressing complaints by their respective stakeholders and oversee the Public Affairs / Protocol, Consumer Protection, SERVICOM and Anti-Corruption Departments while the Aviation Security Directorate in the NCAA will regulate the activities of the AVSEC personnel, especially with their recent arms-bearing status. The Corporate Services Directorates are to oversee the Procurement and Planning, Research, and Departments.”

The reorganization, however, necessitated the appointment of Kabir Yusuf Mohammed as the new Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN.


Similarly, Engr Tayib Odunowo has been appointed the substantive Managing Director of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) to take over from Mr Matthew Lawrence Pwajok who reverts to his substantive position as Director of Operations of the Agency.

The Directors-General of the Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau (NSIB), Engr Akin Olateru; the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet), Prof Mansur Matazu and Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Captain Musa Nuhu are to run the remaining course of their tenures in line with the Acts setting up their respective Agencies.

Also, the Rector of the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology Zaria, Captain Bako Mansur Modibo, has been granted a one-year extension, also in line with the Act setting up the College.
