In a strategic move to address the challenges of airport and passenger management, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has inducted 201 newly-recruited aviation security cadets.

The managing director of FAAN, Mrs. Olubunmi Kuku made this announcement during the passing-out parade ceremony held at the Digital Bridge Institute in Lagos.

The STP 123 Course, a comprehensive eight-week residential training program, is designed to integrate new cadets into the civil aviation industry.

Kuku emphasised that the training was a pivotal step taken by FAAN to enhance safety at the airports and tackle the evolving challenges of the aviation industry.

“This ceremony not only marks a significant milestone in your careers but also in the journey of FAAN towards bolstering the nation’s aviation security. It is also one of our strategic responses to the increase in the volume of passengers using our airports,” she stated.

The managing director urged the cadets to apply the knowledge acquired during the training and uphold the highest standards of integrity and professionalism. She underscored the global significance of aviation security, highlighting its critical role in passenger facilitation and airport operations.

Kuku took the opportunity to express gratitude to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, President Bola Tinubu and the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Chief Festus Keyamo, SAN for their unwavering support and encouragement.

The event witnessed the presence of heads and representatives from various aviation parastatals and security agencies, including the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Nigerian Meteorological Agency, the Nigerian Police Force, the State Security Service, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, the Port Health Service, among others.
