The House of Representatives Wednesday passed two bills to ensure air safety and effective aviation services in Nigeria.
This followed the adoption of the reports of the Committee on Aviation submitted by Rep. Nnoli Nnaji.
- Emirates Airlines resumes Nigerian flights Saturday
- One week after, kidnappers yet to free Jonathan’s cousin
The first report was on a “Bill for an Act to Repeal the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria Act, Cap. F5, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 and Enact the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria Bill to Provide for the Effective Management of Airports in Nigeria; and for Related Matters (HB. 461).”
Nnaji said the bill sought to repeal the former Act and provide for a more effective one seeking to ensure safe and secure airport and air transport services in line with relevant financial and health realities.
The second report was on a “Bill for an Act to Repeal the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency Act 2004 and Enact the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency Bill to provide Efficient Air Navigation Services in Nigeria, Ensure Safety and Regulation of Air Navigation in Nigeria and to any other place which Nigeria has Responsibility of Providing Air Navigation Services; and for Related Matters.”
