FAAN commences Fumigation of Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt airports

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has commenced the fumigation of International Airports in Lagos, Abuja and Port-harcourt ahead of reopening of flight operations in Nigeria.

The General Manager, Corporate Affairs of FAAN, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, made this known in a statement in Lagos.She noted that the fumigation exercise is in line with the efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic that is ravaging the world over.

“This is to ensure the safety of passengers and other airport users when the airports eventually reopen,” she said 

As there is no certain date for the lifting of ban on flights, the GM Corporate affairs added that the authority is taking the proactive steps.

“In March this year, the authority embarked on a similar exercise of disinfection and fumigation of all the international airports,” she added.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Chairman, Presidential Task Force ( PTF) on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, (SGF), Boss Mustapha, had in April announced the extension of ban on flight operations by four weeks.
