The recent out roar by Nigerians and foreigners about corrupt officials in Nigerian airports has come to the public eye of government officials after different people shared their ugly experience with these officials who wanted to extort money.
According to reports, the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, in particular, has been on the map as one of the most corrupt airports, with the airport staff allegedly devising means to extort travellers, especially incoming travellers and foreigners.
Reacting to the complaints on social media, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has warned that bribe-seeking officers at Nigeria’s airports will be barred for life from working at airport terminals across the country, regardless of whether the violator works in the government or private sector.
The FAAN Managing Director, Captain Rabiu Yaduda said this to journalists in Abuja after an emergency meeting with FAAN’s management.
Yaduda said the indiscipline at the airports is embarrassing FAAN and Nigeria. He further explained that the meeting would be escalated at all the airports across the country.
The FAAN boss also urged to report acts of indiscipline at the airports to the appropriate authorities.
