The Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has said that the Authority will continue to train and develop capacity of its members of staff, in line with the provisions of the International Civil Aviation Organization.

He made this disclosure at the passing out parade for Aviation Security and Aerodrome Rescue and Fire Firefighting Services personnel held in Lagos on friday September 9, 2016.

Engr Dunoma, who was represented at the event by the Authority’s Director of Maintenance and Engineering, Engr Olufemi Ogunode while admonishing the graduants to put service before everything else, advised that the ability to set priorities will determine the quality of their stewardship. He added, “In an era of rapid socio-economic changes, earning the respect and trustworthiness of your superiors, would demand exemplary followership qualities. So you have to care for your superiors and be matured in your dealings. Be receptive to their advice and accept constructive criticism”.

The Director of Human Resources, Hajia Salamatu B. Umar-Eluma in her goodwill message, advised graduants that as security and firemen in the airports, their commitment to honour, respect and devotion to duty must be second to none, as the career is much more than a job, but a calling. In her words, “Today, we add you as a link to our chain as members of staff of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria. It is a chain that is characterised by professionalism, discipline, sacrifice, team work and inter-agency collaboration”.

The occassion was witnessed by representatives of the Nigerian Customs, FRSC, the Police and other stakeholders.
