Tinubu suspends NCAA DG, orders EFCC to probe him


President Bola Tinubu, on Wednesday, suspended Musa Nuhu, the director general of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).


Nuhu was suspended and replaced by Chris Najomo as the acting DG.


According to Ngelale, Nuhu was suspended to enable the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate his activities as DG.


The investigation will also include the activities of other NCAA senior officials.

“Director-General of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Capt. Musa Shuaibu Nuhu has been suspended from office to enable the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to conduct an unfettered investigation into the activities of the suspended director-general and other senior officials in the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority,” Ngelale said.


“Chris Najomo assumes office as the Acting Director-General of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority immediately.”


Ngelale said Tinubu also directed Festus Keyamo, minister of aviation and aerospace development to recruit a substantive vice-chancellor and other principal officers of the African Aviation and Aerospace University (AAAU).


The president said he is confident that the new leadership across the critical sector will uphold the safety, convenience, and comfort of the Nigerian people as primary in their administrative activities.


Tinubu had earlier sacked Kabir Mohammed as the managing director (MD) of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).


Tayib Odunowo, the MD of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), was also sacked by the president.
