Abuaj - Newly-elected International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) President, Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu, said he was honoured and humbled by his appointment.
On Monday, Aliu was elected as the first African to lead the organization following a meeting in Montreal, Canada.
He thanked the President, Goodluck Jonathan for nominating him for the position as well as the member states and hailed the trust and confidence they showed in him.
"I will do everything in my power to justify your confidence,” Aliu said.
He said he was ready for the challenge and would not fail Nigerians and the global aviation community in ensuring safer, more secure, efficient and sustainable civil aviation.
