Weekly Trust - - News - Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

Ahead of the Christ­mas and New Year fes­tiv­i­ties, the Fed­eral Air­ports Au­thor­ity of Nige­ria (FAAN) has beefed up se­cu­rity at all air­ports in the coun­try es­pe­cially the in­ter­na­tional gate­ways in La­gos, Abuja, Kano and Port Har­court.

This is to en­sure that the se­cu­rity of the air­ports is not com­pro­mised due to the ex­pected surge in pas­sen­gers’ move­ments.

Spokesper­son of FAAN, Mrs. Hen­ri­etta Yakubu in a state­ment on Fri­day as­sured air trav­el­ers and other air­port users that net­works of air­ports across the coun­try are fully pre­pared for the usual surge in pas­sen­ger traf­fic dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son.

Yakubu noted that a brand new in­ter­na­tional ter­mi­nal was com­mis­sioned for use at the Port Har­court In­ter­na­tional Air­port in ad­di­tion to the one com­mis­sioned by Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari in Abuja on Thurs­day.
