The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has suspended the planned disruption of services in Gombe, Kebbi and Bebi airports over a combined debt of N808.6m.
The General Manager, Corporate Communications of FAAN, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, said the management of Gombe Airport owed FAAN N607, 289,972, while Kebbi and Bebi – a private airstrip in Calabar – owed N124,547,240 and N76,772,948 respectively.
Yakubu, however, told The PUNCH on Monday, that the management of the airports had agreed to a negotiation following a threat by FAAN to withdraw its services.
“After the negotiation, they will come up with a payment plan after which a decision will be reached,” she said.
