Lagos- The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) on Thursday said it was collaborating with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to ensure safety and security on the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Access Road, Lagos.
FAAN’S Managing Director, Mr Saleh Dunoma said this during a working visit by officers of the FRSC to the airport in Lagos.
Dunoma said that the meeting was centred on providing a safe and secure driveway along MMIA Access Road, Lagos by permanently vacating the petroleum tankers positioned along the road.
He said it was the primary duty of petroleum marketers to provide a permanent parking space for their tankers.
Dunoma, however, said that due to its concern for safety and security for airport users, FAAN would do its best in assisting the petroleum marketers in ensuring that the tankers are parked and positioned appropriately.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that those present at the meeting include members of the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and FAAN’s Director of Airport Operations, Capt. Henry Omeogu.
FAAN’s Director of Maintenance and Engineering, Mr Femi Ogunode and the General Manager, Business Development, Abubakar Achimugu, were also at the meeting.
NAN reports that the Minister of Transportation, Mr Chibuke Amaechi had earlier given a directive to FAAN to ensure the removal of all petroleum tankers parked indiscriminately at the airport access road in Lagos. (NAN)
