“We are very impressed about what we have seen. From the navigational aids to the TRACON centre, we learnt a lot," he said.

Guitteye said this had given them more confidence in the ability of NAMA to guarantee safety of air navigation in the region.

"We also discovered from our interaction that Nigeria has very capable technical manpower managing these infrastructure and we shall continue to exchange ideas and technologies, all targeted at enhancing air safety on the continent of Africa.”
