Minister of Aviation and Aerospace, Festus Keyamo, has said he won’t hesitate to sack chief executives of the aviation agencies under his ministry if they want to sabotage his job.
Keyamo spoke in Lagos at a one-day stakeholders’ meeting.
He sought the support of stakeholders in the industry in order to protect his job.
At the end of the three-day retreat organised for them, ministers under President Bola Tinubu’s administration signed a performance bond that put them under an obligation to perform.

Keyamo said, “We had a three-day retreat with Mr. President, all the ministers. At the end of the day, we signed a performance bond. I also signed my performance bond yesterday.
“So, if you don’t want me to get sacked in the next few months, you need to support me.”
Facing the CEOs of Aviation agencies in attendance, he said, “On this side, it is either I get sacked or they get sacked. So, it is a race to who will survive. That’s what I have told all my CEOs, somebody must die first but before I die I will take you down.”
Keyamo said the purpose of the retreat was “to receive inputs from you as technocrats and players in the industry. Your input will add value to the road map/focus area that the Industry will prioritise to make our aviation sector world class and meet the aspirations of Nigerians and all Aviation Stakeholders. We should desist from game blame and focus on solving the problems in the industry.”
