Aviation shakeup: FG replaces NAMA’s MD, Odunowo


The Federal Government has replaced the acting Managing Director of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, NAMA, Mr. Mathew Pwajok.

Pwajok was replaced by the Director of Aerodrome and Airspace Standards, Engr. Tayib Odunowo.

This is coming barely 48 hours after the replacement of Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, FAAN’s Managing Director, Rabiu Yadudu,

The development confirms reports that the development that occurred in FAAN, would be carried out in NAMA, National Safety Investigation Bureau (NSIB), and other agencies under the Ministry of Aviation.

NAMA was established to develop airspace infrastructure to meet the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs)

Meanwhile, fresh indications have emerged that plans are underway to redeploy certain directors to honcho various agencies in the sector, a development which stakeholders have frowned at.

Pwajok was appointed in acting capacity in February 2022 and has since exceeded the six(6) months acting stewardship of the agency.
