FAAN Denies Planned Takeover of Lagos Airport

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), has denied engaging in any plan with the Ministry of Transportation to takeover Murtala Muhammed Airport Two (MMA2) from Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL) on May 7, 2019.

BASL built the facility on Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) on government, private sector partnership.

The General Manager, Corporate Affairs, FAAN, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, told THISDAY that FAAN was not aware of any plans to take over the operations of MMA2 and remarked that someone might be trying to be mischievous, hence the report.

An online medium has reported that a source close to the Ministry of Transport, Aviation Unit, said the Ministry had given the management of FAAN the approval to take over the terminal on the expiration of the 12 years consensual agreement between BASL and the agency.
