Mr Saleh Dunoma, the Managing Director of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has inaugurated the Lagos Runway Safety Team in compliance with Resolution A37-6 of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

Information about the inauguration is contained in a statement issued by FAAN’s General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mr Yakubu Dati, made available on Sunday in Lagos.

Dati said the inauguration took place recently during a meeting between the managing director and members of Lagos Runway Safety Team led by Mrs Ngozi Njoku.

He quoted Dunoma as requiring ICAO member states to equally implement appropriate measures to enhance runway safety.

According to him, the FAAN boss urged the team to ensure strict compliance with ICAO standards in carrying out its duties and encouraged it to ensure the certification of all airports in Nigeria.

Dati also quoted FAAN’s Director of Airport Operations, Capt. Henry Omeogu, as saying that the functions of the team included advising management on potential runway safety issues and recommending strategies for hazard removal.

According to Omeogu, other functions of the team included mitigating residual risk and ensuring strict compliance with ICAO standards in all operations.

On her part, Njoku, who is also the Deputy General Manager/Head of Safety Services Department at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, solicited for Dunoma's support.

She then presented the team's needs which included operational vehicles, communication equipment, fully equipped office facilities, training and other logistic support to the FAAN managing director. (NAN)
