ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has received the positive rating of 40 air traffic controllers during a recent examination.

NAMA Managing Director, Engineer Ibrahim Abdulsalam, commended the personnel for their performance saying they had justified the huge resources invested in the exercise by coming out with an impressive result.

Abdulsalam, through a statement issued in Abuja, expressed confidence that this latest ratings would further boost the critical manpower needed of NAMA especially in Area Radar Control service.

“The critical manpower capacity of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, (NAMA) was given a boost last week with the rating of 40 Air Traffic Controllers by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, (NCAA),” he said.

The NAMA executive said as part of management’s strategy towards building a robust safety infrastructure across the Nigerian airspace, training and re-training of critical manpower had remained the focal point of the administration.

The air traffic controllers, who cut across different cadres, got their ratings after successfully passing the oral, practical and written examinations conducted in Lagos, Abuja, Kano, Port Harcourt as well as Benin airports and supervised by the regulatory authority.

A total of 43 staff took part in the rigorous rating examinations held on Aerodrome, Approach, Approach Radar, Area/Airways and Area Control Surveillance.
