The Aviation Resuscitation Programme for Cadet Pilots and Aircraft Maintenance Engineers has reportedly commenced under the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP).
Mr. Freston Akpor, Senior Assistant on Media to the PAP Interim Administrator (IA), made this information public in a statement released on Tuesday.
The training, according to the statement, is helping to provide ex-agitators with stable employment and building a workforce for the aviation sector in Nigeria.
According to the report, the training officially began with a ceremony on Monday in Lagos.
The announcement cited remarks made at the ceremony by Gen. Barry Ndiomu, Interim Administrator of PAP, who said, “enormous opportunities abound for the beneficiaries in global aviation.”
Wilfred Musa, the PAP’s Head of Reintegration, spoke on Ndiomu’s behalf to discuss the efforts done by previous PAP administrations to improve the training program.
According to the statement, Ndiomu claimed that the complexity of the aviation sector and occasional administrative hiccups were the only obstacles to his achievement.
“Ndiomu claimed that the program’s launch was really planned more than eight years ago, which he said proved that the present PAP leadership was serious about improving the lives of former agitators.
