President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the immediate takeover of the management of the country?s airspace from Ghana, which has held the job for the past 70 years.

With the order, Nigeria would manage its skies over the Gulf of Guinea.

Aviation officials told journalists after a meeting with Buhari that Nigeria?s airspace was safe.

They stated that other neighbouring countries were also making arrangements to take over their airspaces from Ghana.

The Permanent Secretary for the Aviation Ministry, Binta Bello, said in Abuja: ?We have a directive by the president to start the process of securing the management of Nigerian airspace over the Gulf of Guinea, which Ghana has been maintaining since 1945 and there is a move on the ground by Togo and Republic of Benin to take over the management of their own airspace from Ghana.?
