In a swift move, the Federal Government of Nigeria has removed all directors of aviation less than 24 hours after the abrupt removal of agency heads.

This decision, aimed at reshaping the aviation sector to enhance safety and efficiency, was communicated through a statement by Odutayo Oluseyi, the spokesperson for the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo.

The statement specified an immediate handover directive to the affected directors, who are instructed to transfer their duties to the most senior officers in their respective directorates promptly.
