Onyema calls for upward review of salaries of NCAA staffers



The Chairman of Air Peace, Mr Allen Onyema, has called for an upward review of salaries of staff of  the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) .

This is contained a statement issued by the airline Spokesperson, Mr Stanley Olisa, on Wednesday.

Onyema made the call at the 2021 Brazil-Nigeria Aviation and Defence Forum 2021 organised by the Embassy of Brazil Abuja.

”The salary review is needed for the aviation regulatory body to attract and retain the best talents with the requisite experience and qualifications to discharge their oversight responsibilities creditably.

”The agency is not able to poach top talents the industry its salary structure leaves much to be desired,” he said, adding Federal should remove the NCAA from the civil service salary structure.

He hinted that some of the people working the agency are due for retirement and tired but still service the NCAA cannot afford to hire quality staff to replace them.

“Their salaries should be upwardly reviewed to match the airlines’ salary structure, as nobody wants to go there to work but they(current staff) are doing their best, which is commendable. This is a patriotic call”, the aviation don affirmed.(NAN)
