Executive order: FAAN removes check tables at Lagos Airport

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) ghas confirmed that it has removed physical and multiple checks  at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos.

This is in compliance with the order of Acting President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo’s on ease of doing business at ports of entry.

Reports say that the order issued by Osinbajo last month with effect from June 8 compels about eight government agencies at the airport to harmonize their screening at the airport.

At the moment, the physical check tables at the departure hall of the terminal have been removed ditto the desks belonging to Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) and Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

Managing Director/ Chief Executive OfficerEngr. Saleh Dunoma shared his satisfaction with the level of compliance with the executive order.

  “The desks that have been there for manual search are no longer there. The checks are being done at appropriate locations and this has created a tidy hall. This has improved the ambience of the departure hall. Of course, we have some issues that have to do with the first day normally in any operations. We are trying to resolve that.

“We have asked the management of the airport to come up with a complete and comprehensive report with the issues emanating from this operation, so we can further proffer solutions. The whole terminal is very neat and tidy now.”

 “It is not anything peculiar. They want to do certain checks; we will tell them where to do the checks. We are not stopping anybody from checking anything, so long as it is in line with global standard of practice. The Executive Order does not stop that. We will handle Delta Airline issue.
