The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) has condemned the irregular on going recruitment by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) into the Aerodrome Rescue and Fire Fighting Services and aviation security departments in the Agency.
The union in a petition to the Managing Director of FAAN signed by its Secretary General Comrade Ocheme Abah dated 28th June, 2019 raised an alarm over what it called scandalised level of disconnection from the public civil service rules and disregard for technical, safety and security requirements.
NUATE noted that the catchment areas provision in the civil service rule for for lower cadre employees has been completely jettisoned while maximum age requirement for recruitment was thrown overboard as well as technical and physical fitness.
NUATE expressed fear that strides achieved over the years in the aviation sector will be rubbished by this unpatriotic and diabolical aims being foisted on by vested interest.
The union called for an immediate halt into the recruitment exercise in FAAN to allow for a review to bring sanity to the system.
Investigation revealed  that the recruitment was marred by irregularities as politicians hijacked the exercise by forcing on the agency more than half of people that turned out for the exercise.
Some stakeholders queried the choice of Kaduna for the recruitment exercise.
Other unions in the industry are to meet during the week  to decide on their next line of action on the matter.
