The Secretary General of African Airlines Association(AFRAA), Mr Nick Fadugba has reportedly resigned his position in the continental body. He is barely seven months in the saddle before his sudden resignation letter dated June 10, 2010, handed to the secretariat of AFRAA in Nairobi, Kenya. He was elected into office, November 24, 2009 following a keenly contested election held in Maputo, Mozambique.
Giving reason for his decision, Fadugba wrote in his resignation letter that "Since 18 February, 2010, it has been an honour and a privilege for me to serve as Secretary General of AFRAA, an intense period spent single-mindedly addressing the many challenges facing African airlines today.
"After careful deliberation, I have now come to the conclusion that I can better serve the African Aviation industry and African airlines in my previous capacity as founder and Chief Executive Officer of African Aviation Services (AAS) rather than as Secretary General of AFRAA.

"Consequently, I have tendered my resignation as AFRAA Secretary General in accordance with the terms of my contract to Mr Girma Wake, President of AFRAA."
Fadugba thanked the Chief Executives, management, staff and all members of AFRAA for entrusting him with the responsibility of leading the association and for the valuable experience and insight gained.

He said that he was pleased to have initiated steps to resuscitate the fortunes of AFRAA, through the "3 Rs" strategy involving improving the Association’s Relevance to its members, enhancing its international Reputation and boosting its Revenues.
"I look forward to supporting my successor as Secretary General, as well as the AFRAA Secretariat and all AFRAA members. I also look forward to continuing the longstanding close relationship between AFRAA, African Aviation Services (AAS) and African Aviation Magazine in promoting aviation development in Africa, a goal which unites all of us", Fadugba wrote in conclusion of his letter.
