“At the expiration of this notice, the Authority would, pursuant to a Presidential directive, be compelled to take necessary measures to recover these debts,” Dati added.

“All affected debtors have earlier been communicated with details of their respective indebtedness to the Authority,” Dati said.

He said the affected debtors in doubt were advised to liaise with the Authority’s Credit Control Department at its Headquarters for reconciliation of their accounts. 

He said FAAN was self sustaining and could meet its responsibilities within the burden of these huge debts.
