Capt. Nuhu whose tenure as the Director-General of the NCAA has been characterized by value-driven reforms in the aviation sector, has continued to attract commendation from within and outside the continent.
To Capt. Nuhu’s credit, the agency is currently undergoing massive reforms especially in the areas of international certifications for in-house inspectors; world-class automation of the aviation sector; strict adherence and compliance to safety and standards by operators in the aviation sector in Nigeria. He also recently received a commendation for his role in promoting indigenous aviation businesses in Nigeria. He was also instrumental in contributing to the template for the global aviation restart programme post-COVID-19. Nigeria’s Aviation Restart programme, which was hailed by continental and global aviation bodies, was partly adopted in the drafting of the aviation industry restart manual post-covid-19.
He will be receiving the award alongside the winners in various categories including President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, as the African Political Leader of the Year 2021; the President of Botswana, Mokgweetsi Masis, as the African Peace & Security Leader of the Year 2021; Egyptian Football Star, Mo Salah, as ALM Young person of the Year 2021, alongside five other distinguished Africans in a keenly contested poll.
