Flight operations at Kaduna Airport will be suspended beginning Sunday.
This is due to numerous aviation groups around the country deciding to go on strike before next week’s Friday.
National Union Of Air Transport Employees, Association Of Nigeria Aviation Professionals, and National Association Of Aircraft Pilots And Engineers are the unions.
In a letter jointly signed by the leaders of the three bodies, the workers said the strike was in consonance with the declaration by the Nigeria Labour Congress, Kaduna State Chapter, to embark on the action in protest to anti-labour practices perpetrated against civil servants by the Governor Nasir El-Rufai-led administration in the state.
The letter dated May 14, 2021 was titled, ‘Notice To All Aviation Workers – Total Shut Down Of Kaduna Airport’. It was jointly signed by NUATE General Secretary, Ocheme Aba; ANAP General Secretary, Rasaq Saidu; and NAAPE General Secretary, Umoh Ofonime.
The aviation unions further wrote the Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Capt Hamisu Yadudu, officially informing him of the development.
The Kaduna Airport has both domestic and international wings and processes both local and international passengers.
