The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, announced his recent visit to Caverton Helicopters in Lagos State, Nigeria.

In a social media post via his verified X (formerly Twitter) handle on Sunday, Keyamo shared insights into his visit to the company.

Supporting Local Operators and Aviation Development

During his visit to Caverton Helicopters, Keyamo emphasized one of his key performance indicators (KPIs), which is to support and encourage local operators in the aviation sector.

He highlighted the importance of boosting local aviation businesses, and his visit to the company was in line with this objective.

Inspection of State-of-the-Art Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) Facility

Keyamo revealed that during his visit, he had the opportunity to inspect Caverton Helicopters’ state-of-the-art Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) facility.

This facility plays a vital role in the maintenance and repair of helicopters, ensuring their operational safety and efficiency.

Taking a Crash Course in Piloting a Helicopter

As part of his visit, Keyamo shared an interesting experience of taking a crash course in piloting a helicopter.

He mentioned that Caverton Helicopters provided him with access to a very modern helicopter simulator. This hands-on experience allowed him to better understand the intricacies of piloting a helicopter.

Honorary Captain’s Certificate

Keyamo concluded his post by revealing that, after his crash course in helicopter piloting, he was presented with an Honorary Captain’s Certificate.

This certificate serves as recognition of his engagement with Caverton Helicopters and his commitment to supporting the aviation industry.

Keyamo’s Comments on the Tinubu Certificate Controversy

In addition to his visit to Caverton Helicopters, Keyamo also addressed the ongoing controversy surrounding the academic records of President Bola Tinubu.

He criticized some television anchors for displaying what he termed a stunning level of illiteracy in their comments on the matter.

Keyamo’s Perspective on the Certificate Controversy

Keyamo pointed out that the Chicago State University (CSU) has not denied the authenticity of the certificate presented by President Tinubu.

He emphasized that there is no forensic report indicating that the certificate is fake or altered.

Comparing the Tinubu Controversy to Buhari’s

Keyamo made a comparison to his tweet in 2019 when there was a certificate controversy surrounding former President Muhammadu Buhari.

He noted that his tweet from that time would have been applicable if CSU had acknowledged issuing the replacement certificate while denying its authenticity.
