No plans to move firefighting simulator out of Nigerian College of Technology Zaria to Lagos – Ministry

The Ministry of Aviation and Aerospace Development has urged the public to disregard rumour making the rounds of a motion moved on the floor of the House of Representatives by a member making reference to a plan by the Ministry to move a fire-fighting simulator out of the Nigerian College of Technology, Zaria to Lagos state.
Media aide to the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Tunde Moshood in a press release said the rumour is nothing but pure mischief by agents of destabilisation and is totally untrue.

“Whist we acknowledge the patriotism of the House entertaining the Motion, we think it was totally unnecessary since the Speaker already had a private audience with the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development few days ago when this issue came up and the Minister assured Mr. Speaker that there was NO IOTA of truth in the rumour.

” The Minister further put a call to the Rector of the school who re-assured Mr. Speaker that it was an unfounded rumour and purely a mischief. So, why the motion?

“The remour amounts to grandstanding by anyone still trying to make political gains out of nothing,” he said.
