Airports concession to wait : House of Representatives

‘Airports concession to wait’

FG

THE House of Representatives yesterday asked the Federal Government to stay action on the proposed concession of airports.

The decision was sequel to the adoption of the recommendations of the House Committee on Aviation headed by Nkeiruka Onyejeocha on “The Investigation of the Need to Rescue the Airline Industry from Imminent Collapse”.

According to the House, the Minister of State on Aviation should put the process on hold “until the minister has been able to brief the House and Nigerians on how the proposed concession will remedy the challenges facing the sector and benefit consumers”.

The government has expressed its desire to concession four major airports in Lagos, Kano, Abuja and Port Harcourt for greater efficiency.

The lawmakers called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate the diversion of the N120 billion aviation intervention fund provided by the CBN in 2012.
