The federal executive council (FEC) has approved the sum of N28 billion for the total radar coverage project of the Nigeria Airspace Management Agency (NAMA).

Total radar coverage is an initiative towards enhancing civil and military surveillance of aircraft operating in the Nigerian airspace.

Hadi Sirika, minister of aviation, while speaking with state house correspondents after the council meeting, said the contract was part of the three memos brought for the consideration of FEC on behalf of the ministry.

He said that the three memos were approved.

“Today, the council received three memoranda from aviation, and they were all approved consequently,” Sirika said.
