Nigeria Aviation: Nigerian Aviation College has refurbished 22 Planes

The Rector, Nigerian College of Aviation Technology, Zaria, Capt. Adebayo Araba, has said that the college has rehabilitated 22 aeroplanes since 2007. Araba told the News Agency of Nigeria in Zaria, Kaduna State, on Friday that by 2007, the college had only one serviceable aeroplane.

“When I came in as rector in 2007, I met only one serviceable aeroplane and that resulted in non-availability of any training in this college.Before I came, only one pilot and one aeroplane were hired for the college when Isa Yuguda was Aviation Minister to enable the college to continue with pilot training.

“However, the college now has 23 aeroplanes. I didn’t buy them; neither did I come with them. These are things they had the in the store.

“But because of the lack of good orientation, they kept all of them in the store and went to hire aeroplanes from outside.”

The rector said that training was moving perfectly well in the college “and it is up to the expectations of the aviation industry.”

Araba, however, said that in spite of his efforts, many petitions had been written against him and attributed the situation to people, who hated change.
