NAMA's Director, Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, Abdullahi Musa

The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) is gearing up to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

To make it a huge success, the agency is seeking a partnership with the League of Airport and Aviation Correspondents (LAAC). 

The celebration, tagged “NAMA @ 25,” will take place from July 21st to 23rd, 2024, in Abuja.

According to the NAMA’s Director of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, Alhaji Abdullahi Musa a partnership with LAAC would not only help spread the word about the event globally but also ensure that stakeholders and the general public are adequately informed before and after the celebrations.

The anniversary program will focus on NAMA’s journey from its inception in 1999 to the present day, highlighting its commitment to promoting and enhancing air navigation safety in Nigeria. 

“We intend to use the opportunity of this programme to showcase several milestones recorded by the agency across different administrations in the aspect of boosting and upgrading our Air Traffic Management, navigational and surveillance facilities to keep pace with global best practices as recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs),”Musa said.

The event will feature paper presentations, lectures, and symposia on the future of NAMA in the next 25 years, as well as awards for aviation stakeholders who have positively impacted the agency since its inception.

Musa emphasized the importance of the presence and participation of aviation journalists, who have been reporting on NAMA’s achievements over the years. 

He believes that their involvement will enrich the discussions and analyses, drawing from their wealth of experience.

Earlier, Suleiman Idris, the chairman of LAAC, noted that his association has had a robust working relationship with NAMA since its creation. 

He expressed his administration’s commitment to further enhancing the existing partnership with the agency and highlighted some of the challenges affecting LAAC’s operations, including epileptic power supply at their secretariat in Lagos.

The highlight of the occasion was the conferment of the position of Patron of the League on NAMA’s Director, Abdullahi Musa.

Established via Act. No. 48 of 1999 as an agency of the federal government, NAMA is responsible for providing air navigation services over Nigeria’s national boundaries, including its territorial waters. 

The forthcoming 25th anniversary celebrations will be a significant milestone in the agency’s history.
