ABUJA- The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) is ready to partner the National Cancer Society and other relevant bodies to fight cancer, its Managing Director, Mr Saleh Dunoma, has said.
A statement issued by FAAN General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr Yakubu Dati, in Abuja, said Dunoma made the intention known at the Customers Service Appreciation Day organised by the Servicom Unit of the agency.
Represented by the Director of Administration, Mr Ikechi Uko, the managing director urged all stakeholders in the aviation industry to be actively involved in the awareness and fight against cancer.
“We (FAAN) are looking forward to partnering with the National Cancer Society and other relevant bodies toward combating this disease.’’
Dunoma also called for care and support without discrimination for those affected by cancer.
“In our fight against cancer, we must ensure that we do not promote fear and victimisation,” he said.
Dunoma said that the aviation sector would be rebranded and redirected to become a highly and effective customer service-oriented industry.
“These strategies emphasise improvement in customer service aimed at satisfying our customers, stakeholders and other airport users in line with best practices,’’ he said.
Dr Morenike Olatunji of Aviation Medical Clinic listed breast cancer, prostate cancer, oral cancer, lung cancer and liver cancer as types of cancer, which caused many deaths globally.
The General Manager Servicom, Mrs Ebele Okoye, stressed the need for good quality service delivery in the industry.
