CILT Pledges Support for Aviation’s Advancement


…Commits to Research, Policy Implementation, Capacity Dev. to Boosting Nigeria’s Aviation Progress

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) has affirmed its commitment to bolstering the growth of Nigeria’s aviation industry.

At a seminar in Lagos organized by CILT’s Aviation Mode Chapter to mark the International Civil Aviation, ICAO, Day, in Lagos, the institute declared its readiness to assist in research, policy implementation, and capacity development.

Mr. Aina Akinbola, the General Secretary of the Lagos branch, highlighted CILT’s pool of professionals capable of offering guidance to policymakers, emphasizing the importance of translating bilateral agreements into effective policies.

He underscored the institute’s available manpower for the government to tap into for achieving the nation’s aviation goals.

Addressing the role of research, Akinbola emphasized its significance in evaluating policies, logistics, transportation, and infrastructural development.

He called for continuous assessment to determine policy effectiveness and the need for adjustments.

Additionally, Mrs. Maria Umoh-Ordor, a CILT fellow, suggested collaboration between the institute and aviation practitioners.

She proposed the submission of professionally researched papers through CILT, which could then be relayed to the government to shape robust policies for aviation and transportation.

However, Umoh-Ordor raised concerns about sentimentality and geopolitical considerations affecting the aviation industry’s operations.

She highlighted the need to prioritize core professionals over geopolitical balancing in appointing key positions, emphasizing that deploying individuals based on merit is essential for the industry’s progress.

The CILT fellow discussed the evolving nature of aviation, stressing the importance of staying updated and placing well-prepared individuals in key roles, considering factors such as technological advancements and age-related challenges.

Nigerian CILT President Barr. Mfon Usoro represented by Mr. Usoro Samuel commended the CILT Aviation Mode for their commitment to promoting the industry through its yearly ICAO celebrations.

According to Mfon, members of CILT Aviation Mode are worthy ambassadors of the Association and urged them not to relax in their oars to keep the flag flying.

Representative CILT, Aviation Mode Chapter, Mrs Queen Ajayi earlier in her address of welcome, applauded members and guests for their supportive role over the years.

Part of the event of the ICAO Day was a walk by members starting from FAAN and NCAA, MMA 2, GAT to Murtala Mohammed International Airport, MMIA Lagos.
