The Federal Government of Nigeria is concluding arrangements to acquire one of the best hi-tech aviation equipment from Norway.
The move was disclosed on Monday by the Honourable Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo.
According to the post made on his official (X) Twitter account, the Honourable Minister said he was made to sit down to test one of the aviation equipment.
He also revealed that he was going to carry out further technical testing of the equipment before accepting them for export to Nigeria.
The post stated:
Earlier today, in Larvik, near Oslo in Norway, I conducted an inspection visit to the company called Jotron that specialises is the design, development and manufacturing of communications and safety equipment for the aviation industry.
The purpose of this visit was to personally assess and officially accept the communication equipment purchased by the Federal Government for twelve of our control towers in Nigeria.
These control towers are the ones located in Akure, Benin, Calabar, Enugu, Ibadan, Ilorin, Jos, Kaduna, Minna, Owerri, Sokoto, and Yola. Joining me on this visit were the MD of one of our agencies (NAMA) Engr. T. Odunowo, Engr. Farouk A. Umar, the Director of Safety Electronics and Engineering Services and other technical experts from NAMA.
“After my inspection of the aviation communications equipment today in Norway, I was made to sit down to test one of the equipment, after which I left the technical crew with whom I travelled behind for further technical testing of the equipment before we accept them for export to Nigeria👇👇”
