Aviation Minister orders NCAA, FAAN, others to relocate to Abuja immediately.

The minister explained that the directive is an attempt to enforce the 2012 Presidential directive that then ordered all government agencies to move their headquarters to the Federal Capital Territory.

With this directive, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB), Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET), are expected to relocate within the given time frame.

He added that the movement is now imperative because of the current global economic situation and reducing the cost of governance.

It stated, "I am directed to remind you of a Presidential directive issued in 2012 requesting all the agencies under the Ministry of Aviation to relocate their corporate headquarters to the Federal Capital Territory ( Abuja ) for efficient and effective coordination and enhanced service delivery and note that eight (8) years after the directive, the agencies are yet to comply".
