The commissioner, Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB), Akin Olateru, has taken a holistic assessment of his agency, stating that he was pleased with the remarkable achievements in 2018.
He stated that in 2019, AIB would do more in the upgrade of its infrastructure, ensure constant review of its systems, processes and procedure, and invest more on human capital development. All these he noted, would make AIB world- class institution and an enviable place to work.
The aircraft engineer, however called on the staff to roll up their sleeves, tighten their seat belts and be prepared for greater work deliveries. He assured that they would do so in the most cordial manner fostering an even better working relationship with dynamism.
In a new year message to the workers recently, the AIB boss disclosed that the feat achieved by the aviation agency was even more appreciable by the laurels AIB was decorated with during the NIGAV awards 2018, stressing that the feat was made possible by management and staff of the agency who worked tirelessly to make the agency one of the most vibrant in the outgone year.
For 2019, Olateru said, “We shall be better than before. We will do more in upgrading our infrastructure, equipment and invest more on human capital development. All these I believe will make AIB a world class institution and make it an enviable place to work.
“I therefore call on us all to roll up our sleeves, tighten our seat belts and be prepared for greater work deliveries. This we shall do in most cordial manner fostering an even better working relationship with dynamism.”
He thanked the entire AIB team for the unalloyed support and cooperation he had enjoyed working with each and every one of them through 2018.
He further stated that no doubt, year 2018 came with its highs and lows, the sense of community was unparalleled in the way each one contributed to the call to duty.
“I take this auspicious moment to applaud our corporate hard work and synergy and to say well done for a good job in 2018. We will not rest on our oars but must be determined to make more successes than we have recorded,” he said.
The AIB was one of the stand-out agencies in the sector with many of the reforms put together by Olateru, an aircraft engineer in less than two years he assumed leadership of the organisation.
The speedy release of accident reports that had gathered dust on the shelf and other measures led to the commendation by the highly – revered United States National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) for its rich accident investigation programmes, which are expected to enhance air safety in the country.
The Bureau also achieved a great feat December last year, releasing timely and accurate air accident report in Sao Tome and Principe. Olateru led his team to submit the final report of the accident involving Cavok Airlines CVK 7087 AN-74TK-100 Aircraft Registered Ur-CKC, which occurred at Sao Tome International Airport, Sao Tome on July 29th, 2017.
