TSA: NAMA calls for strict compliance of stakeholders
The managing director of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, NAMA, Engr. Ibrahim Abdulsalam has called on workers in the organisation to adhere strictly to the tenets of the newly introduced Treasury Single Account, tax policy as well as all other policy initiatives of the federal government.
Engr. Abdulsalam stated that all the policies were all targeted at repositioning the economy towards greatness.
NAMA boss who made the remarks at a one-day workshop attended by top management staff of NAMA at the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) Training Centre, NCAA Annex, Ikeja, explained that the Treasury Single Account is a unified government accounting system which enables consolidation and optimal utilization of revenue.
He added that in the light of dwindling oil fortunes, there was the need for all stakeholders to support and encourage the reforms of the Federal Government both in their individual and collective capacities to succeed, as these policy initiatives according to him were bound to give the Nigerian economy and by extension, the aviation sector the needed boost and turnaround in the long run.
Engr. Abdulsalam also charged participants to look inwards and device new frontiers where the agency could generate more revenue from non-aeronautical sources, just as he cautioned against waste and frivolous expenses.
“The present economic realities have left us with no other option than to align ourselves with the policy direction of the Federal Government by prioritising our expenditure and also blocking leakages,” Abdulsalam said.
