Minister of Aviation Senator Hadi Sirika has charged aviation stakeholders to brace up and device means by which the sector can cope with the Covid-19 pandemic, as the scourge may linger for a while.
According to the minister who stated this in Akwa Ibom at the opening of a four-day capacity building retreat for senior management staff of the aviation ministry
and its parastatals, it is necessary to take these steps in order not to derail from the implementation of the roadmap being pursued.
While noting that the aviation sector was the worst hit by the pandemic, Sirika regretted that Covid-19
came at a time when the sector was becoming the fastest-growing sector of the Nigerian economy.
“I noticed that included in the retreat objectives was a discussion on issues and challenges on the implementation of the aviation Roadmap
. I will urge the retreat to treat and dissect the aviation sector Roadmap to digest its content and facilitate its implementation,” Sirika added.
Speaking also, Malam Abidu Yazid, Chairman of Savannah Centre for Development and Training, facilitators of the retreat, observed that there is a need for partnership and acquisition of knowledge for the industry to succeed.
Sirika said synergy is key to the realization of objectives where more than one player is involved in driving policies.
He further commended the aviation minister for leading the sector from the front, not shying away from taking responsibilities and embarking on projects and programmes for the ultimate benefit of the nation’s aviation industry.
