FAAN Threatens To Publish Names Of Debtors

By Eseme MacDonald | Associate Editor on February 21, 2015

Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has threatened to publish the names of its debtors, including airlines, concessionaires and other service providers at Nigerian airports in major Nigerian newspapers as a prelude to other measures it is currently considering to recover the debts, Leadership reports.

This was disclosed via a communique signed by the general manager, corporate communications, Mr Yakubu Dati on Friday, February 20, 2015.

In the statement, the authority urged all its affected customers to approach the authority’s debt recovery department at its headquarters or airports managers across the country with relevant documents and reconcile their accounts or face the shame of having their names published.

The statement said, “The Authority is constrained to take this measure because the level of indebtedness to the Authority may soon begin to take a toll on its services which should not be allowed to happen, in the overall interest of safety and security at airports.

“The Authority has also observed, rather sadly, that most of its customers deliberately refuse to pay their charges and fees long after FAAN has rendered them statutory services.”
