He however said: “Our team of experts has worked tirelessly to uncover the root causes of various incidents and accidents through meticulous analysis, thorough research, and unwavering dedication. The publication of these reports serves as a testament to our commitment to safety and underscores our mission to prevent similar occurrences in the future.”

“Today, we are proud to present to you two aviation incident final reports, one aviation incident preliminary report, and a marine accident preliminary report, along with safety recommendations. The four (4) reports being released today contain a total twenty (20) safety recommendations,” he said.
