NAMA issues masts warning

17 July 2013, 09:05

Lagos - The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has given owners of telecommunication masts situated illegally across the country a four week ultimatum to dismantle the structures.

According to the agency, the structures which did not conform to legal regulations posed inherent danger to air navigation.

Supo Atobatele, General Manager of Public Affairs at NAMA, said the agency had engaged the services of two local firms, Seas Electrical and Computer Services Ltd, to dismantle the masts if the companies did not comply with NASA orders.

Atobatele cited sections of the NAMA Act, which empowered it to “prohibit and regulate the installation of any structure which by virtue of its height or position is considered to endanger the safety of air navigation” and “prevent interference with the use or effectiveness of all apparatus used in connection with air navigation.”

In accordance with the act, any person or organization intending to erect telecommunication masts, hoist balloons, construct hangers or other high-rise structures within the Nigerian airspace is required to obtain Aviation Height Clearance Certification from NAMA before commencement.

Violators are subject to fines.
