Meanwhile, the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) says it is currently upgrading control towers in four international airports to enhance air traffic management.
Acting Managing Director of NAMA Mr. Matthew Pwajok, disclosed this in Abuja when he featured on a News Forum.
Pwajok said that the control towers, having been installed over 10 years ago, were obsolete and as such needed to be upgraded.
The Acting Managing Director said this was as a result of a World Bank technical assistance programme, an intervention programme of 2014 designed to provide funding for strategic capacity development in the sector.
He said some key expertise were identified and funding was provided for the training of air traffic controllers, pointing out that the trainings to a large extent helped to enhance specialization and expertise in key safety critical personnel in the agency, adding that this had added value to the system.
