Aromiwura Aderemi Joined the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria in June 1987 on grade level 09 having completed his B. Sc. (2nd Class Upper Division & M. Sc.) studies in Surveying at the University of Lagos in 1984 and 1986 respectively. His B. Sc. project study on Error Analysis and Adjustment of Nigerian Triangulation Networks, virtually turned him into a system analyst which became manifest in the discharge of all his assignments and deployments.
His inquisitiveness, passion and analytical background coupled with training exposures in Airport/Aviation planning and Management variously at Singapore, Montreal – Canada, United Kingdom and Exchange programs at Miami Int’l Airport in United States of America along with a number local seminars and workshops, strengthened his grip on managerial assignments.
At early stages of his working career with FAAN, he was seconded to International Airports Consultants Limited (IACL), a subsidiary of FAAN (now defunct) where he was actively involved in airport and pavement designs and supervision of airport projects. Aromiwura believed that high integrity survey data and sound laboratory testing are the quality control mechanisms of Engineering projects. This position played out and resulted in cost saving measures (running in excess of hundred of millions of Naira) in some of our rehabilitation projects where he actively participated, i.e. Kano runway rehabilitation project.
As an Assitant General Manager, Mr. Aromiwura managed General Aviation Terminal, MMA at a time the Terminal was at its lowest ebb in terms of general environmental issues of cleanliness, sewage management, safety and security issues and also weak infrastructural facilities that resulted in constant fire outbreaks. The terminal witnessed a transformation into security, safety and operational excellence, prompt and preventive maintenance and high commercial returns. The relationship with stakeholders especially the airlines under the auspices of Airlines Association of Nigeria AON, was greatly enhanced and they reciprocated by prompt payment of their bills.
He was for a period of time the Estate Manager where a revolution of a sort was witnessed in the quality of delivery and insistence on maintenance being carried out by the department directly or through contracts as against claims on refund by the residents on expenses purportedly spent on maintenance.
Before his appointment as the General Manager in charge of Lands, Water and Survey, Aromiwura served the authority in the capacity of the Regional General Manager, South West.
Aderemi Aromiwura retired from the services of FAAN in September 2017.
