Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

The Fed­eral Air­ports Au­thor­ity of Nige­ria (FAAN) said it is work­ing with the Nige­ria Cus­toms Ser­vice and clear­ing agents to ex­pe­dite the clear­ing process of cargo at the air­port.

The Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of FAAN, Engr. Saleh Dunoma stated this in La­gos dur­ing an in­spec­tion tour of on-go­ing projects at the air­ports. Engr. Dunoma, in pur­suit of diver­si­fi­ca­tion of sources of rev­enue from aero­nau­ti­cal sources to oth­ers, said cargo oper­a­tions would soon be­come a main­stay of the Au­thor­ity’s oper­a­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the lim­i­ta­tions are due to the laid-down pro­ce­dures and pro­cesses that must be fol­lowed which is statu­tory.

He added that cargo ter­mi­nals are built all over the coun­try to take ad­van­tage of the agri­cul­tural po­ten­tial of the coun­try and elim­i­nate wastage.

He as­sured the gen­eral public that ef­forts are be­ing made to fast­track the cargo sys­tem.
