■ NIGERIA: Joyce Nkemakolam appointed interim DG of the Nigerian CAA.

NCAAThe Nigerian Government has appointed the Director of Aerodrome Services, Joyce Nkemakolam, as the acting Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA.

Nkemakonam is the most senior member of Aerodrome Services board and was appointed following the  sacking of Dr Harold Demuren on Tuesday night.

Despite a negative government inquest into his conduct, Demuren's dismissal has been greeted with some consternation amongst stakeholders in the Nigerian aviation market, who claim the justification used to fire him, were "flimsy".
