Sen. Sirika bows out, hands over leadership mantle to Zakari

By Victor Akaa, Abuja

The outgoing Minister of State for Aviation Senator Hadi Sirika on Tuesday handed over the mantle of leadership of the Aviation sector to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Transportation,  Alhaji Sabiu Zakari, barely less than 24 hours before the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term. President Buhari has promised to consolidate on his achievements in the past four years.

Speaking at the event, Senator Sirika attributed his modest achievements during his period of stewardship to the cooperation of the management team and members of staff of the Ministry and its agencies,  and called on them to extend same to whoever becomes the next Minister. 

He also appreciated the contributions of the members of the Fourth Estate of the Realm for their constructive contributions to the growth of the Aviation industry and described them as worthy stakeholders in the sector.
