Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, is scheduled to meet with the heads of aviation agencies in the country over recurring safety issues in the industry.
Keyamo will meet the aviation agencies’ heads on Monday in Abuja, according to a statement by the ministry.
The agencies include the Nigeria Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), the Federal Airport Authority Nigeria (FAAN), the Nigeria Safety Investigation Bureau (NSIB), and the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

On Sunday, there was drama on Flight NUA 0504 from the Lagos airport on Sunday when some Abuja-bound passengers were flown to Asaba airport
The cabin crew, upon landing in Asaba, told the passengers that they had arrived at Abuja airport, creating confusion among the passengers. The airline later blamed “poor weather” for the diversion of the flight.
