NCAA boss sues for peace among unions


The Director General of Ni­gerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, Captain Usman Muhtar, has advised various unions in the aviation industry to always settle their differences amicably to achieve a harmonious work­ing environment.

Speaking while playing host to members of the Air Trans­port Services Senior Staff As­sociation, ATSSSAN, Muhtar noted that strife among unions will not lead to growth in the aviation industry.

He assured the union that measures have been put in place by NCAA to clear all outstand­ing staff claims by setting up a committee to review all out­standing claims with a view to making recommendations.

The DG explained that the target of NCAA was to ensure that staff were paid allowances before embarking on any assign­ment.

He apologised for the delay in in payment and assured of plans to fast-track the promo­tion of staff, stressing the need for training as a result of the emerging innovations necessi­tated by technology in the sec­tor.

Earlier in his speech, Nation­al president of ATSSSAN, Com­rade Benjamin Okewu, said the misunderstanding in the union was an in-house thing and thanked the DG for his warm reception.
