The General Manager, Corporate Communications of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, Mr. Yakubu Dati, on Tuesday denied allegations by critics that the sacked Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah, had a hand in the removal of the former heads of aviation agencies.
The Federal Government, Dati said, in its wisdom decided to effect changes in the management of the aviation agencies in the public interest.
He said the former Managing Directors of FAAN, Mr. George Uriesi; the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Mr. Nnamdi Udoh; Rector of the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Capt. Chinyere Kalu; and the Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Capt. Fola Akinkuotu, worked with the former minister while her tenure lasted without any issue.
“These gentlemen worked under Princess Oduah when she was the Aviation Minister. So if she wanted to remove any of them, she possibly could have done so”, he said.
