ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Management of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has assured the general public that there would be no disruption in the provision of air traffic services today.

According to senior management staff, the development is in line with the agency’s mandate to provide safe, economic, efficient and expeditious air navigation services.

“The agency wishes to restate that the current agitation by Air Traffic Controllers on harmonization of professional allowances with other professional groups in NAMA has been addressed on its merit and resolved by the Federal Government.

“On the strength of this resolution, there is no cause for any industrial disharmony by professional groups in the agency and further to our commitment to staff welfare, NAMA wishes to reassure the general public of the safety and security of the Nigerian airspace,” said Olajumoke Adetona, NAMA General Manager of Personnel Administration, said.

She added that the service delivery capacity of the agency had been at optimum and further enhanced by the recent successful calibration of Navigational Aids across the country.

“In line with the agency’s vision, several safety-critical projects, in particular ADS-C and CPDLC, are being closed to fully optimize capacity. Airlines, operators and other service providers who are dependent on the agency’s services are advised to go ahead with flights as scheduled,” Adetona said.

NAMA workers were recently on strike demanding better working conditions.
