He said, they would have to give way for the airport to be more efficient, adding that, it is $300m investment over there.

”And they can’t sit there in public interest and we would certainly shift them somewhere, it has to go. You cannot deny this city Lagos and the country in general from the use of their airport”.

I don’t need to demolish their building, if i say go and he doesn’t go, i fire him, i appointed him, big deal”.

He said, the agencies have been directed to put together document of all safety and security critical items that would make the industry more efficient, more profitable for posterity to form his handing over notes.
