Keyamo’s Firm Stand on Performance: “I’d rather fire you than lose my job,” Minister warns CEOs of Aviation Agencies
Mr. Festus Keyamo, the newly appointed Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, has sent a clear message to chief executives of the aviation agencies under his ministry, asserting that he would not hesitate to dismiss them if necessary to safeguard his position. The stern warning was delivered during a one-day stakeholders’ meeting in Lagos, the first of its kind under his leadership.
In light of recent commitments made by ministers serving in President Tinubu’s administration, who signed a performance bond obligating them to deliver results, Keyamo emphasized the importance of support from stakeholders within the industry to ensure his continued tenure.
“We had a three-day retreat with Mr. President, all the Ministers. At the end of the day, we signed a performance bond. I also signed my performance bond yesterday. So, if you don’t want me to get sacked in the next few months, you need to support me,” Keyamo declared at the meeting.
Speaking further, the Minister underscored the need for collaboration to address the challenges within the aviation sector. He emphasized the government’s economic plan, aimed at revitalizing the economy and fostering growth, job creation, and poverty alleviation.
Keyamo highlighted the inspection of Nigeria’s airports, the setup of a task force for the relocation of foreign airlines, and the initiation of plans for the construction of the second runway at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja. He assured stakeholders that these measures would not only enhance the nation’s airports but also contribute significantly to Nigeria’s economic development.
“As you are aware, Mr. President has unveiled his economic plan. The three-year economic revival plan that emerged from his inaugural Federal Executive Council meeting is anchored in an Eight-Point focus area targeted at addressing Nigeria’s socio-economic challenges,” Keyamo stated.
In conclusion, the Minister expressed gratitude for the valuable inputs received from industry professionals and pledged to incorporate these insights into the development of the aviation sector during an upcoming management retreat.
