The Nigerian Air Traffic Controllers’ Association (NATCA) has enjoined the Minster of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika to confirm the Acting Managing Director of Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, NAMA, Mr Matthew Lawrence Pwajok as the substantive Managing Director.
The President of NATCA, Abayomi Agoro made the call in his welcome address at the association’s 51st annual general meeting/conference which held in Ibadan last week.
Abayomi Agoro said his association was impressed by the performance of the new management team in NAMA led by Pwajok, stressing that “we speak for majority of our members in soliciting that the Honourable Minister of Aviation graciously extend his usual Midas touch in seeking the confirmation of Mr Matthew Lawrence Pwajok as the substantive Managing Director/Chief Executive of NAMA.”
Agoro commended NAMA under Pwajok for the progress being made in the upgrade of navigational infrastructure across the country, noting that “the Air Traffic Controller remained the centerpiece in the changes and improvements being made in NAMA with the introduction of new procedures and even the deployment of newer solutions.”
Administering the induction on new members, the President of NATCA, Abayomi Agoro charged them to be of good conduct as “ambassadors of our reputable association,” stressing that NATCA as an umbrella body of Air Traffic Controllers in Nigeria was poised to see to the welfare and wellbeing of members.
