President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Adefunke Adeyemi on her election as the new Secretary General of the African Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC), the African Union (AU) agency responsible for civil aviation in Africa.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity, Femi Adesina in a statement on Friday in Abuja, revealed that the President reiterated Nigeria’s commitment to promoting a prosperous and integrated Africa through the activities of organisations such as AFCAC.

He stated that the Nigerian leader trusts that the newly appointed Secretary-General will advance the common objective of the association with the support of the Bureau, Secretariat, AFCAC member States, international organizations, States Partners and all aviation and affiliated stakeholders.

“As Nigeria is a signatory to the Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM), President Buhari urges the Commission to remain resolute in the implementation of the full liberalisation of air transport services, with the attendant benefits: increased air service levels and lower fares, facilitate tourism, trade and investment as well as enhance productivity, economic growth and employment.   

“The President wishes the Nigerian-born Secretary-General all the best in her new assignment,” he stated.
