FG Will Convert Zaria Hotels To Classrooms, Hostels For Aviation College – Keyamo

The Federal Government is to convert Zaria Hotels in Kaduna State to classrooms and hostels for the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology, Zaria, Aviation Minister, Festus Keyamo, has said.

Keyamo told newsmen in Zaria on Wednesday that the Zaria Hotels had been acquired as an annexure to the NCAT to widen its growth potential.

He spoke shortly after a familiarisation tour of the institution.

Keyamo said that NCAT remained the best institution for the aviation industry in Nigeria and West Africa.

“The landmass we have here is enough for expansion, so the potential for the college, in terms of expansion, is great.

“But, despite that, we have also acquired Zaria Hotels as an annexure to the college. We want to add to the facilities on the ground,” he said.

The minister assured the management of the college that the government would keep working on areas that needed improvement.

On reports that the college’s fire simulator and other facilities are to be relocated elsewhere, the minister said that there was no such plan.

“There is nothing like that; if we do it, where are we going to take it? NCAT is the training hub for the aviation industry; the rumour is being spread by mischief makers,” he added.

In his remark, acting Rector of NCAT, Mr Joseph Imalighwe, commended the minister for the visit and support for the college.
