The Federal Airports Authority of Nigerian has inaugurated 107 Aviation Security and 109 Aerodrome Rescue and Fire Fighting Services personnel.

The Managing Director of FAAN, Saleh Dunoma, said the development was a demonstration of the management’s commitment to human capacity development in order to meet the highest standards of professionalism and best industry practices.

Dunoma, who was represented at the inauguration by the FAAN Director of Finance and Accounts, Mr. Sadiku Rafindadi, commended the parade instructors and trainees for the performance, professional carriage and drill, adding that the painstaking rehearsals and hard work had paid off.

He also urged the 216 workers to remember all they had learnt and make personal commitment to excel in their careers.

Dunoma said, “This career path is challenging and rewarding. In the course of its (FAAN’s) pursuit, you have a great responsibility to live up to the vision of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, which is to be amongst the best airport groups in the world.

“You should be vigilant and ensure that you do not become the weak link in this value chain. While acknowledging the inherent challenges in your operations, you must guard against temptation, and compromises. You should always put service first before any other consideration, as this organisation places integrity above all other things.”

The FAAN’s Director of Human Resources and Administration, Hajia Salamatu Umar-Eluwa, said the 216 inaugurated officers had gone through three months of training at FAAN training centre and that they were part of the online recruitment exercise that took place in 2015.

She said the first batch was trained between July and October last year and had since been integrated into the system.
