NAMA To Boost Internally Generated Revenue Profile



The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) said it has commenced moves to increase its revenue base to effectively meet its core obligation of providing air navigation service within the Nigerian airspace to stakeholders.

The NAMA Managing Director, Capt. Fola Akinkuotu said this while receiving the report of the Revenue Mobilization Committee set up by the agency.

He explained that move became imperative owing to the rising commitments of the agency in the area of upgrading navigational infrastructure, enhancing air traffic management services, building staff capacity as well as other personnel costs.

Akinkuotu said that the management of the agency  would carefully study the report with a view to implementing relevant aspects of it, stressing that “an improvement in the revenue profile of the agency would translate to a more robust NAMA, discharging its functions in a more efficient manner.”

He however enjoined staff “to be more prudent and avoid wastages in order to make this dream realizable.”

Recalled that in the quest to improve its revenue generating capacity, the agency recently inaugurated a Revenue Mobilization Committee, whose core term of reference was to extensively deliberate on the agency’s statutory revenue sources and develop strategies for more effective ways of generation and collection.

The committee which sat between February and April 2018 came up with recommendations, some of which include: improvement on the frequency of stakeholder engagement especially on matters relating to service delivery, media enlightenment of customers through various platforms, provision of incentives for prompt payment by customers, improvement on the agency’s e-payment platform, including deployment of Point of Sales (POS) in all revenue payment points nationwide and maintaining constant liaison with the regulator and stakeholders in matters relating to the review of charges.
