The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority has appointed Zilcotech International Limited as a consultant for the monitoring of the illegal erection of high structures nationwide.
NCAA noted that this was in line with section 35(h) of the Civil Aviation Act 2022; and Parts 18.104.22.168.3.1, 22.214.171.124.2 (2), and 126.96.36.199.6 of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations, (Nig. CARS) 2015.
A statement on Wednesday by General Manager, of Public Affairs, Sam Adurogboye, noted that Zilcotech’s engagement is the sequel to the Federal Executive Council approval dated November 17, 2022, and the agreement signed on December 22, 2021, between the NCAA and the firm.
Consequently, a letter of introduction has been sent out to all the concerned operators and stakeholders in the industry.
The statement reads, “We are confident that this collaboration will be beneficial to all stakeholders and the public at large as it concerns the enhancement of safety within the navigable airspace of Nigeria.
“It is expected that concerned stakeholders would cooperate with the consultant in the interest of safer skies and all payments accruing to the Authority on account of the attendant services are to be made directly to NCAA and not to the Consultant.
“The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority would continue to ensure strict compliance with Safety Regulations and violations would be viewed seriously.”
