Confusion as workers protest planned concession of Lagos, Abuja airports

Disruption rented the air around the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) vicinity in the early hours of Tuesday as workers of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria disrupted activities at the Airport during their protest against the proposed concession of the airport and the Nnamdi Azikwe Airport, Abuja.

The workers in their hundreds said they will do everything within their powers to resist the sale of Nigeria’s commonwealth to few in the name of concession.

Many of them who spoke to our correspondent queried why government left nonperforming airports to concession active ones because the essence of concessioning is to allow private sector revive enterprises that are collapsing due to excess bureaucracies of government.
