Due diligence will remain a guiding principle of The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) before the regulatory body will certify airports across Nigeria.
The Director General, Captain Muhtar Usman said the authority is taking its time in the certification process to avoid embarrassing Nigeria when the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) audit is done on all the airports.
The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), has said as a regulatory agency, it will always resist the urge to be in a hurry to certify airports across the country.
According to director general of the agency, Captain Muhtar Usman, the NCAA is taking its time to make sure things are done properly bearing in mind that due diligence remains the guiding principle.
He said the authority is taking its time in the certification process so that when the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) audit is done on all the airports, Nigeria won’t be found wanting.
Usman who stated this in an interview with LEADERSHIP assured that, while the civil aviation authority is set up to meet all the ICAO Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs), nothing will make the authority act in manners that are below international standards in certifying the airports.
