NCAA mulls regulation amendment to advance aviation sector
The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority says it is ready to amend regulation for the advancement of civil aviation in Nigeria.
NCAA Director-General, Capt. Musa Nuhu, said this at stakeholders’ consultation on the Proposed Amendment to the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations on Tuesday in Abuja.
Nuhu said the regulation would improve matters pertinent to aviation and reposition the stance of qualified stakeholders.
“I am optimistic that during these three days of deliberation, the aviation professionals and experts present physically or virtually will assist the Authority to derive near perfect regulations for the advancement of Civil Aviation in Nigeria.
“It is with great joy that I welcome every one of you to the stakeholders’ consultation on the proposed amendment to the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations.
“This consultation organised by the NCAA is coming shortly after the publication of the Civil Aviation Act 2022.
“The powers of the NCAA to regulate civil aviation in Nigeria are captured throughout Civil Aviation Act 2022. Section 31 of the Act empowers the Authority to make regulations on all aspects of civil aviation matters,” it said.
Nuhu said the Regulations made to cover and domesticate all ICAO Standards were contained in relevant Annexes as required by Article 37 of Convention on International Civil Aviation.
According to him, the regulations also addressed pertinent national matters.
The NCAA boss said the stakeholders’ consultation was in accordance with the obligation imposed on the Authority in Sec 31 (5) of the Civil Aviation Act 2022.
“Which stated that in exercise of its power to make regulations under this section, the Authority shall consult with stakeholders including airlines, aerodrome operators, air traffic control service providers, consumers and other relevant bodies and organisations in the aviation industry.
“I know you are all well represented on this platform.
“All comments received from stakeholder pursuant to Notice of Proposed Amendments published on 12th February 2023 in accordance with approved NCAA rule making process manual will be responded to by NCAA,” he said.
