The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has announced that it will move its headquarters back to Lagos from Abuja, following a directive from the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo.
The decision was made after consultations with stakeholders and unions, who agreed that the relocation to Abuja was a mistake that cost the agency and the country a lot of resources and inconvenience.
FAAN said that it had no office space in Abuja to accommodate its staff, who had to return to Lagos and claim duty tour allowance. It also said that it would have to abandon its old building in Lagos and rent a new one in Abuja, which would be a waste of money.
The agency assured the public that it will continue to operate in both cities until concessionaires build new offices for it. It said that the move to Lagos was a technical decision that will not affect its operations or services.
