Mark Laments Recurring Mishap in Aviation IndustryFeatured, Latest News, News Sunday, December 8th, 2013
Senate President, David Mark, on Friday urged stakeholders in the aviation industry to rise up to the challenges in the industry and to
ensure that they comply with international standard of operation.
David Mark lamented the recurring mishaps in the aviation sector when the Aviation Minister, Ms. Stella Oduah and the newly elected
President of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Dr. Olumuyiwa Benard Aliyu visited him.
He acknowledge the fact that the Nigerian Aviation sector is faced with many challenges but pointed out that they are surmountable.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, in Abuja, Mark said: “Aviation industry in Nigeria must meet international standard. You cannot lead such a global body if your own house is not good enough. The current turbulence in the aviation industry should not be a permanent feature. It should be resolved as quickly as possible so that we can guarantee safety in the industry.
“In other climes, they also have challenges, mechanical or otherwise, but they have the capability and capacity to resolve them quickly.
This is how it should be and not waiting for months or years to resolve them.”
He added that the industry needs professionalism in order to address the turbulence in the sector and make the industry safe and secured.
He urged Aliyu to demonstrate leadership and represent Nigeria creditably because whatever he does positively or negatively would ultimately affect Nigeria.
