Buhari Revamps Nigeria Aviation Sector, Orders Takeover Of Airspace From Ghana For First Time In 70 Years – Morgan Winsor

August 8, 2015


For the first time in 70 years, Ghana will no longer manage Nigeria’s airspace. Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the immediate takeover of the country’s skies over the Gulf of Guinea from Ghana in West Africa, according to Nigerian newspapers.
After meeting with the Nigerian president Wednesday, aviation officials told journalists that Nigeria’s airspace was safe and other neighboring countries were also making arrangements to take over their airspaces from Ghana. “We have a directive by the president to start the process of securing the management of Nigerian airspace over the Gulf of Guinea, which Ghana has been maintaining since 1945, and there is a move on the ground by Togo and Republic of Benin to take over the management of their own airspace from Ghana,” Binta Bello, the permanent secretary for the aviation ministry, said in the capital Abuja, according to Daily Trust.

    This is good news. May God continue to guide, protect and preserve the life of President Mohammed Buhari for us to revamp our dear country. He is taking some encouraging steps just within two months he’s taken over the mantle of leadership. Every mouth should continue praying for him. May Allah hear and answer our prayers, Amen.

      Dear Fatai,

      Thanks for this.

      Yes, we must all continue to pray that God keep His watch over him. The changes, though may not be that apparent, are huge. Gasoline lines disappeared once some marketers were dealt with heavy hands while prices jumped right back to the prices they are supposed to be sold for.

      When the “advisers” started offering “suggestions” on the same tired old “subsidy removal”, all Buhari said was “How do they want people to feed their families …? Mouths shut since!

      The Buhari factor is everywhere. IF he’s able to do even half of what he promised, especially as regards the looters and looted funds, Nigerians would have ONE join the country’s founding fathers, not the self-proclaimed and self-parading “fathers and mothers of the nation”!
