Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Aviation Technology, Mr. Thomas Eriyetomi, has pledged commitment to ensuring a productive aviation industry in the country.
Mr. Thomas Eriyetomi who stated this at the inaugural meeting of the Committee assured that the new committee would not fail the House, Nigerians and stakeholders in carrying out its mandate.
According to him, the Committee will engage and synergize with relevant stakeholders to give Nigerians the democratic dividend of a highly innovative and productive aviation industry.
“You will agree with me that the quality of members of this Committee shows the seriousness the House leadership attaches to this Committee and the expectation is high.
“As we all know, this Committee is a newly created Committee, carved out of the existing Committee on Aviation. It is a hi-tech driven Committee with so much expectations from us.
“A work plan has been drawn out to guide us in the journey ahead, go through it and come up with constructive inputs to help us chart our course.
“This Committee is charged therefore with overseeing the following: oversight over Air Safety Services at Airports (NSIB), oversight over Schools of Aviation, oversight over Aviation Institutions, oversight over Metrological Services (NIMET), annual Budget estimates and Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT).
“I pledge to run an all-inclusive open administration, where every member is equal and shall be treated as such. Also, the Committee’s Clerk and the Secretariat will be empowered to function optimally.
“Finally, we will leave no stone unturned in the discharge of our responsibilities or any other matter referred to it by bringing our various competences to bear on every issue”.
