Minister of Aviation and Aerospace, Festus Keyamo said he has warned the chief executives of the aviation agencies under his ministry that he would rather sack them than lose his job.

Keyamo who disclosed this in Lagos at the one-day stakeholders’ meeting, said with the performance bond he signed as a Minister, it is now a race of who will survive.

He sought the support of stakeholders in the industry to protect his job.

The Minister noted that the retreat was to receive inputs from the stakeholders as technocrats and players in the industry.

He 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.

“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.

“Your input will add value to the road map/focus area that the Industry will prioritize 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.

“As you are aware, Mr. President has unveiled his economic plan. The three-year economic revival plan that emerged from his inaugural Federal Executive Council meeting is anchored in an Eight-Point focus area targeted at addressing Nigeria’s socio-economic challenges.

“It seeks to move away from the frenzied borrowing of the last government, check the unacceptably high jobless rate, achieve economic growth, prosperity for all, and end poverty. This, we as an industry, will factor into our own focus areas for the development of the industry and in turn the economic development of our Nation.”
