He emphasized that “technology has played a crucial role in improving the safety, efficiency, and capabilities of aircraft from the early days of aviation to the present.”

Daniel, the former governor of Ogun State, added that Nigerian aviation technology has advanced significantly over time.

“As the biggest economy in Africa, Nigeria has made significant advancements in the aviation sector, particularly in the areas of airports and infrastructure, navigation and communication systems, and aircraft maintenance and repair,” he stated.

Despite Nigeria’s notable advancements in aviation technology, he acknowledged that there remained unresolved issues.

The legislator listed a number of issues that needed to be resolved, including the requirement for ongoing funding for infrastructure development, improvements to safety and security protocols, and encouragement of aviation technology research and innovation.

“Nigeria can enhance its aviation industry, accelerate economic expansion, and foster connectivity on a national and global scale by tackling these obstacles,” he declared.
