The Federal Government has dismissed all directors of civil aviation agencies in the country following the sacking of the chief executive officers of the same organizations.

Recall yesterday that Nairametrics reported that President Bola Tinubu sacked six Managing Directors and Directors-General of parastatals in the Ministry of Aviation and Aerospace Development.

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau, Nigerian Meteorological Agency, Nigerian College of Aviation Technology, and Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority are all part of the entities affected by recent developments.

Subsequently, in a statement on Thursday the Federal Government, through Minister Festus Keyamo of Aviation and Aerospace Development, has mandated the immediate handover of duties by all impacted directors to the most senior officers in their respective directorates.

The statement was signed by a spokesperson for the minister, Odutayo Oluseyi.

However, the federal government also noted that Board Secretaries and Legal Advisers are not affected by this directive.
