AFARN urges transparency in airports concession

The Association of Foreign Airlines Representatives in Nigeria (AFARN) has lent its voice to the lingering controversy trailing the concession of the four major airports of Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt and Kano. The group tasked Aviation Minister, Hadi Sirika, with the handling of the concession process.

President, AFARM, Mr. Kingsley Nwokoma, in a press briefing at the weekend, said AFARN was not against the concession of four major aerodromes, but urged government to ensure it scrutinises the bidders well to get the best out of the deal.

He particularly made reference to the position of Mr. Femi Falana (SAN) whose firm advised that there may be a legal battle if things are not done right based on what the law says.

While leaving the legal technicalities for lawyers, AFARN wants the Federal Government to be very transparent in this process and advised that those that breach the concession rules should be disqualified.

According to Nwokoma, “the world is watching the process and AFARN calls upon the minister to live up to the above promise he made at the outset of this process.
