Nigerian govt recalls two out of nine sacked NCAA directors

Feb 27, 2017: The federal government has recalled two out of the nine directors who were sacked from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) on Friday.

Adamu Abdullahi, Director of Consumer Protection, and Ayodele Sasegbon, Director of General Aviation are the two directors who were recalled.

Sam Adurogboye, General Manager, Public Relations, NCAA, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Lagos.

"I can confirm that two of the directors, Abdullahi and Sasegbon have been recalled and their sack rescinded," he said.

It is not clear why the directors were recalled.

The government, through the Ministry of Transportation, had on Friday sacked the duo and other directors in the aviation regulatory agency with immediate effect.

The directors affected by the purge were Salawu Ozigi (Director of Finance and Accounts), Joyce Nkemakolam (Director of Aerodrome and Airspace Standards) and Aba Ejembi (Director of Administration).

Others are Emmanuel Ogunbami (Director of Licensing), Benedict Adeyileka (Director of Airworthiness), Justus Wariya (Director of Air Transport Regulation) and Austin-Amadi Ifeanyi (Director of Human Resources).

The affected directors were immediately ordered to hand over to their next subordinate who will in the interim take charge of the activities in their directorates.

The government had on October 12, 2016 sacked or demoted 22 directors and general managers of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
