Worried by the menace of encroachment at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has declared its readiness to partner the government of Enugu State to address the menace.

The Managing Director of FAAN, Captain Rabiu Hamisu Yadudu made the declaration today following a joint facilities inspection visit to the airport by the management of FAAN and the Governor of Enugu State, Mr Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

Expressing his gratitude to Governor Ugwuanyi for his swift response to this issue by directing that all illegal structures on the airport be demolished after a week’s notice of evacuation, he noted that human habitation within the airport’s airfield is a safety concern to the Authority because of the heavy equipment that moves within the environment.

The MD, who also held a town hall meeting with staff of the airport where he assured them of Management’s commitment to improved facilities and infrastructure, added that the Authority will continue to ensure safe and secured airports in Nigeria.
