Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has confirmed more than 200 staff as fire-fighting and security officers after a 13-week training programme in Lagos.
The officers, who have gone through rigorous training in fitness and attitude toward work, displayed various skills in match past and Taekwondo during their passing-out parade.
Mr. Saleh Dunoma, Managing Director of FAAN, who congratulated the officers for their successful training, urged them to be good ambassadors of the organization in the discharge of their duties.
Dunoma represented by the Director, Engineering services, Salisu Daura, said the three months of rigorous training had been rough and tough for them but was rewarding.
”This is the trend, even in school, am not taking about regimented life, the ladies seem to be doing better that the men probably they read more, there is the saying that what a man can do, women can do better and we have just witnessed today now”, the MD asserted.
Mr. Nath McAbraham Inajoh, General Manager, Training, FAAN, lauded the officers for their commitment, resilience and co-operation during the period, and hoped they would add value to the organization in their new places of assignment.
Ibekwe Ebere Chukwu Joy, one of the recipients of the second best female academics award described the award as a surprise, and thanked God for the success of the programme, adding, ”the training was so rigorous, it got to a point, I wanted to lose hope.”
