After over two decades of struggles to retrieve part of its landed property encroached into by its local neighbours, the management of Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria has finally reclaimed the encroached land.
The management of the aviation college, however, appreciated specifically the entire management of the Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Agency (KASUPDA) and the Kaduna State Government, “for their efforts and assistance in helping us to reclaim our encroached land that has been trespassed into for over two decades. After the exercise, 160 houses were affected.
“We also wish to express our gratitude to the Executive Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasiru El-Rufa’i, the Kaduna State Commissioner of Police and all the security agencies that contributed in one way or the other in ensuring the recovery of our encroached land.”
According to the college’s management, the development will help in providing a better atmosphere for aviation training in line with its determination to be the best in the area of giving adequate aviation training.
“As you may be aware, the College of Aviation Technology, Zaria has been awarded the Regional Training Center of Excellence by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The college intends to expand the size of its runway to accommodate bigger aircraft in the nearest future. This can be used for not just training but even commercial purposes, which will in turn, provide job opportunities to the aviation industry and the nation at large.
“This will improve safety to the neighbouring communities and also help the college in securing it premises against external security threat”, the school management said.
