FG boosts security at Nnamdi Azikiwe

10 June 2016, 21:47

Abuja - The Federal government will soon place security equipment at the domestic terminal of the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport in Abuja to enable some airlines to operate without hampering the ongoing restructuring and remodelling works.

Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, said this was aimed at decongesting the traffic at the international terminal and make surveillance easier.

Giving the indication when he received a delegation from the British High Commission, led by the Head of Aviation Security, Jankie Milies, in his office, Sirika said he had considered this necessary in view of the precarious world security situation that has put aviation under serious watch.

Sirika also disclosed that the ministry was also working seriously towards improving the physical security of the nation’s airports, and commended the efforts of the British government, through the High Commission in Abuja, in conducting and assessment of the security situation in the nation’s airports with the aim of determining areas of possible assistance.

Milies had earlier told the Minister that her team had undertaken an assessment of some of the nation’s airports airport with the assistance of the relevant agencies, in order to determine areas of possible assistance and discovered some challenges in cargo handling.

She said the team had one more round of assessment to do before turning in their full report that would culminate in further discussions and informed the Minister of their readiness to conduct some training for about 80 aviation employees drawn from the relevant agencies.
