The Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the African Aviation and Aerospace University to prevent and mitigate accidents.

This was disclosed in a statement signed on Thursday by the Director, Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, NSIB, Bimbo Oladeji.

Speaking at the ceremony held at the NSIB Training School in Lagos, the Chief Executive Officer of NSIB, Alex Badeh, emphasised that the MoU sets the stage for facility sharing, capacity building, and collaboration between the Bureau and AAAU.

As part of its support, NSIB has granted AAAU access to its facilities, facilitating an efficient exchange of resources and expertise and further solidifying the commitment to mutual advancement in aviation safety in Africa.

“I am confident that this MoU will enhance the effectiveness of our collaboration and commitment to promoting safer skies and operational excellence in the aviation industry in Nigeria and beyond,” Badeh said.

Appreciating the Bureau’s invaluable support and partnership, the Registrar of AAAU, represented by the Director of Physical Planning and Works, Masud Yerima, stated that “the journey of AAAU’s establishment and progress would have faced considerable challenges without NSIB’s generous support.”

Furthermore, the registrar commended Badeh for his exemplary leadership and steadfast dedication to propelling NSIB to greater heights.

He affirmed AAAU’s readiness to engage in mutually beneficial endeavours with NSIB, ensuring the successful realisation of shared objectives.

This partnership marks a significant milestone in fostering a culture of safety and excellence within Nigeria’s aviation sector, and both NSIB and AAAU are poised to leverage this synergy for the benefit of the industry and the nation at large.

The AAAU is the first pan-African university dedicated to aviation, aerospace, and environmental science.

AAAU tackles the research and development gap in Africa’s aviation and aerospace sectors while simultaneously cultivating a skilled workforce to propel them forward.
