New NSIB boss promises to prioritise safety

The new Director-General of the Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau, Alex Badeh has promised to work with relevant agencies to prioritise safety and zero-accident in air, land and water transportation in the country.

Badeh made this known on Monday when he formally took over from his predecessor, Akin Olateru in Abuja.

He said his vision, among others, included ensuring that Nigerian skies are the safest in Africa.

He commended President Bola Tinubu and the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Festus Keyamo, for finding him worthy of the appointment.

Badeh said, “As I take over this crucial agency, I do so with a distinct vision – not solely mine, but one harmoniously aligned with the visionary directives and foresight of the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace, Festus Keyamo SAN.

“The minister has charted a clear course through his five-point agenda for the ministry, under which the Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau is domiciled.

“I am honoured to be a part of the team navigating this course and I am fully committed to implementing the first point of the agenda, which focuses on ensuring strict compliance with safety regulations and continuously enhancing Nigeria’s rating by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

The New DG noted that his vision was not to simply react to accidents but “we will proactively prevent them from occurring.
