The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has implored  the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC) to  look into the irregularities in its contractual agreement with the Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL) on the Murtala Muhammed Airport Two (MMA 2), Lagos.

A statement by Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, the General Manager, Corporate Communications, FAAN said that the Build Operate and Transfer (BOT) agreement granted Bi Courtney was for the design, financing, construction and management of a domestic terminal building at the Murtala Muhammed Airport.

According to her, the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) did not and could not have formed a part of the concession.

She emphasised that before the terminal presently developed and occupied by BASL got burnt, the GAT had existed and operated independently on its own, accusing BASL of trying to reap where it has not sown.

The statement added: “We, therefore, want to reiterate our position that GAT is not part of the concession granted Messrs Bi Courtney, neither had FAAN admitted to that assertion at any time.

“It is imperative to state that certain provisions in the concession agreement are negatively skewed against the overall interest of Nigeria and Nigerians and it hampers the growth and development of the industry.
