The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has listed Nigeria as one of the 14 countries in Africa that have achieved effective air safety implementation.
This is contained in a statement issued by Mr. Yakubu Dati, General Manager, Corporate Communications of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), on Wednesday in Lagos.
Dati said in the statement that the achievement was in line with air safety implementation above the global average of 61 per cent.
According to him, the rating is contained in the ICAO 2013 Safety Report, compiled by the organisation’s auditors.
“The auditors investigated the compliance with stipulated International safety standards by individual countries across the world, especially its 200-member countries,” the News Agency of Nigeria quoted the FAAN spokesman as saying in the statement.
