According to the Managing Director of NAMA, Engineer Ibrahim Abdulsalam, the project is part of the larger agreement reached with ASECNA on a working partnership that would make for seamless and interoperable systems across the region.

“One can rest be assured that the safety of the African sky is our primary consideration,” said Abdulsalam.

CAJ News established that a team of engineers from ASECNA are now in the country for the purpose of setting up coordination links between Lagos-Lome, Lagos-Malabo and Kano-Lome.

Lome and Mlabo are in Togo and Equatorial Guinea respectively.

The development follow a recent visit of the ASECNA team to Nigeria and agreements reached with the ASECNA technical staffs that were drawn from the agency’s headquarters in Senegal and Togo.

The team is expected to work closely with NAMA officials to effect the installation of base band equipment and satellite modems, including configurations and tests between Lagos and Kano, which would bring about a successful integration and coordination between Nigeria and its Francophone neighbours.
