……NCAA to automate all processes and procedures
The Director General, Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, Captain Musa Nuhu says airline are in for a shocker if they believe that government’s intervention will solve their problems.
He urged operators that while government was willing and preparing to assist the sector due to the impact of the COVIC-19 on the sector, the operators should devise their own means and plans for survival of always talking and waiting for government stimulus package.
At the Aviation RoundTable Safety Initiatives, ART webinar today with the
theme: COVID-19: “The Challenges and Opportunities for Nigeria’s Aviation Value Chain “During and Post – COVID, Captain Nuhu says that charity begins at home, stressing that operators should begin to strategise on cost cutting, how they intend to manage their resources before relying on government stimulus package.
” I get worried when I hear operators say government give me, government give
me money and have not heard the operators what they are trying to do to
help themselves, what are you doing, what are your plans? Don’t tell me give, give me, charity begins at home, you come up with
your own plans, how do you cut your cost, how do you intend to manage your resources, all I hear from the airlines give me, give me, have not heard from them what we are planning what we need to do.”
“Am sorry we are all sitting down here thinking government will resolve all our problems you are in for a shock. We need to think internally how we can help ourselves”, he added.
On his plans for the NCAA, Captain Nuhu said in the coming months, the operators and other stakeholders would have seamless operations in dealing with the Authority as it had put measures in place to automate processes and procedures in place.
Explaining further, the NCAA boss says, all its internal processes would be automated anyone seeking application, registration, licensing and others could do so by going into their website with password that would be given them.
“As regards NCAA, we have started the process of automation my plans in the next 24-36 months all internal processes of NCAA will be fully automated,in additional to that within another 12-24 months with all that achieved stakeholders will have full automation. We give him his password, he goes into NCAA website, he can see anything he wants to see, whether his pilots, whether his aircraft, his application, he has access to everything thing.”
Captain Nuhu warned that nobody should come to his office and anyone that came would mean they are in trouble, adding that the current situation presents an excellent opportunity to re-set the industry.
“I don’t want people coming to my office. If you go the office of the regulator, that means you are in big trouble Yes COVID-19 presents a lot of challenges but it is also a real opportunity for us to reset out industry.”
