Nigeria's civil aviation authority (NCAA) has received praise from the ICAO Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme (USOAP) that has just been concluded.


In a statement yesterday the NCAA said a four-man ICAO team, led by Jean-Claude Waffo, had arrived Nigeria on March 13, to assess the country's aviation industry. The preliminary report, commended Nigeria for the progress and development being made in the sector.
"Each member gave an individual assessment of all the delineated areas. These are: Legislation (LEG), Organisation (ORG), Accident and Incident Investigation (AIG), Air Navigational Services (ANS) and Aerodrome and Ground Aids (AGA),” NCAA said
"During the presentation, the team leader and the members articulated all their systemic findings in the course of the 11-day USOAP Audit conducted in Nigeria.
"While there were areas that were identified as open items that needed to be closed, the Auditors were unanimously very satisfied with the level of improvement in the aviation industry in Nigeria.
"The auditors were highly impressed with the stellar preparation for the audit by all concerned and claimed that this made the exercise a huge success.''
According to the statement, the final report will be produced within 90 days and sent to Canada for review and final assent, after comments on the draft report have been received from Nigeria.
