The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), is to commence repairs of comfort and passenger facilitation equipment at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA).
This is coming on the heels on the recent unscheduled visit to the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Ikeja by the Acting President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo for inspection,
Managing Director, FAAN, Mr. Saleh Dunoma during a tour of the Airport directed engineers to commence work immediately on the facilities.
He said the directive had become necessary because the Excellency, Mr President has visited the MMIA recently, pointing out that the visit with his technical team is to come up with plan to implement his instructions immediately.
Dunoma said “there are few things we need to fix immediately. I say immediately; immediately means immediately. This is a Presidential directive. We will not waste time and that is why you see us working on a Saturday. We will still work tomorrow. We just have to come up with strategic implementation plans so that we don’t disrupt operations. This is key to us”.
According to Dunoma, areas of focus are the travelators, toilet facilities and some other external facilities.
“We have a contract on the chillers. Funding has been a problem for us but we are pushing to see that it is fixed”.
Mr. Dunoma equally assured travelers of an improved facilities as FAAN has started work day and night.
“I want to assure the travellers that we are working. With the support of His Excellency and Minister of State Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, we will surmount all the issues. They are not insurmountable. We will work hard and improve on the comfort of the travellers”.
