0

In an apparent move to respond to the 21st-century challenges of airport and passenger management, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has inducted 201 new Aviation Security Cadets.

This was announced by the Managing Director of FAAN, Mrs. Olubunmi Kuku, in her speech at the passing out parade ceremony held for newly recruited Aviation Security Cadets at the Digital Bridge Institute, Lagos on Tuesday, December 19, 2023.

FAAN Ag. Director, Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, Mrs. Faithful Hope-Ivbaze in a statement said, the STP 123 Course was a residential training programme with a duration of eight weeks designed to help integrate new Cadets into the Civil Aviation Industry to implement, monitor, and enforce Aviation Security measures proactively in accordance with locally approved regulations.

In her speech, the MD of FAAN informed the cadets the training was one of the steps being taken by the agency to ensure total safety at the airports.

“This ceremony not only marks a significant milestone in your careers but also in the journey of FAAN towards bolstering the nation’s aviation security,” she said.

“It is also one of our strategic responses to the increase in volume of passengers using our airports.”

Mrs. Kuku charged them to put to good use all they have learnt during the training program, urging them to embody the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.

She emphasised that globally, aviation business is hinged on security and safety, the aviation security department is, therefore, very critical to passenger facilitation and airport operations.

The MD/CE used the opportunity to express her appreciation, and indeed that of the entire management and staff of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria to the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as well as the Honourable Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Chief Festus Keyamo, SAN, for their support and encouragement.

In attendance at the event were heads, and representatives of aviation parastatals and security agencies including the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Nigerian Meteorological Agency, the Nigerian Police Force, the State Security Service, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, the Port Health Service, amongst others.
