Aviation agency workers desert offices

01 April 2015, 15:02

Abuja - Aviation agencies workers yesterday deserted their offices at the Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA) Lagos over alleged fears that there may be crisis after the declaration of the presidential election result, Daily Independent reports

As early as 12 noon some of the offices were already empty while those still in the various offices were about to leave.

It was not clear if a directive was given to that effect, but one of the agency workers told our correspondent it might not be unconnected with the  fear of possible crisis that could erupt after the declaration of the winner of presidential election  by the Independent National Electoral  Commission(INEC).
