Nigeria’s ATC Advocates Annual Employment Of Over 50

The Nigerian Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA) has called on the government to begin the employment of between 50 and 100 Air traffic controllers annually to ensure that there is no vacuum created as a result of aging workforce in the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA).

NATCA’s President, Comrade Victor Eyaru who made this call on behalf of his association, said Nigeria needed additional 700 air traffic controllers to boost operations in the country’s airspace.

Commending NAMA’s engineers for keeping the radars working, Eyaro urged the government to source for spare parts for the Radars in the country to ensure that controllers did not go back to procedural air traffic control in the country adding that additional radar /ADSB was needed to work with the procedural control.

Currently, NATCA has about 400 members manning various control towers across airports in the country.
