NAMA moves to block rev­enue leak­ages

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

The Nige­rian Airspace Man­age­ment Agency (NAMA) has de­vised mea­sures to strengthen pro­cesses and pro­ce­dures for ef­fec­tive rev­enue gen­er­a­tion and col­lec­tion at the var­i­ous air­ports in the coun­try.

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of NAMA, Engr. Ibrahim Ab­dul­salam tasked the staff to also come up with new ini­tia­tives to im­prove the rev­enue base of the agency.

Ab­dul­salam spoke at a two­day in­ter­ac­tive meet­ing of se­nior staff of Ac­counts and Com­mer­cial de­part­ments of the agency which took place at the FAAN Train­ing School in La­gos.

He said mem­bers of staff should “de­vise new ini­tia­tives of im­prov­ing the rev­enue base of the agency by stream­lin­ing ex­pen­di­ture and block­ing leak­ages.”

He em­pha­sized that there was the need for a work­ing syn­ergy be­tween both de­part­ments to thrive in the gen­eral in­ter­est of the agency.

Ab­dul­salam also charged them to bring their pro­fes­sional ex­per­tise to bear to­wards ef­fec­tively re­view­ing the rev­enue stan­dard op­er­at­ing man­ual in or­der to meet in­dus­try best prac­tices and also en­sure ef­fec­tive ser­vice de­liv­ery.

Ac­cord­ing to Ab­dul­salam, all agen­cies of gov­ern­ment, in­clud­ing NAMA, should work to­wards em­brac­ing the new fis­cal poli­cies in­tro­duced by Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari ad­min­is­tra­tion.

“We all have to align all the agency’s oper­a­tions to em­brace the fis­cal poli­cies, like the Trea­sury Sin­gle Ac­count, of the Buhari ad­min­is­tra­tion ( TSA) which are geared to­wards pro­mot­ing trans­parency and ac­count­abil­ity in the public sec­tor,” he said.
