The Federal Government has stated its readiness to deploy additional technology to advance aviation security in the nation’s airports.
The Managing Director, Federal Airports of Nigeria FAAN, Rabiu Yadudu made the declaration at the national Aviation Security Day and Awards 2021, in Abuja, under the theme: “Professional work force: Pre-requisite for building an effective security culture.”
The event aimed at promoting security culture at airports across the country, in line with the International Civil Aviation Organisation ICAO’s declaration of the year 2021, as the year of security culture.
Yadudu said such move by the government would help it improve on its strategies to curb insecurity in the aviation industry.
Yadudu added that the objective of Civil Aviation Security was to assure the safety of passengers, crew, ground personnel, general public, aircraft and facilities of an airport serving civil aviation, against acts of unlawful interference perpetrated on ground or in flight.
