Among the achievements of NAMA was the successful completion and deployment into operations the Total Radar Coverage of Nigeria(TRACON) project which had hitherto suffered seven-stagnation and controversy. It was commissioned by the President, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on October 17, 2010.
In addition, Ibiyemi noted that under the current leadership of Mazi Udoh, Nigeria’s bold attempt to migrate from terrestrial to satellite air navigation, otherwise known as Performance Based Navigation(PBN) received a boost recently when two foreign airlines test flew the new procedure with pilots successfully landing their aircraft at both Lagos and Kano airports.
With this development, the Managing Director of NAMA, Mazi Udoh was quoted as saying-"With the success recorded in our quest of moving from terrestrial to a satellite based air navigation system, Nigeria has joined the league of big countries that are already operating the ICAO endorsed air navigation programme."

He remarked: "With this award given to NAMA, we have made a statement today that leadership is a collective responsibility and that everyone in NAMA has in one way or the other contributed to the honour bestowed on the Agency by coming together to ensure transformation of the Agency for better service delivery."
