Nigeria to ensure uninterrupted power supply at airports
font size    

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said it has taken measures to ensure uninterrupted power supply at the nation's 21 airports to enhance safety and better service delivery.

Akin Olukunle, the FAAN's general manager for public affairs, said at the weekend that FAAN's Managing Director Mohammad Yusufu had "mandated a management committee to work toward achieving the goal."

The committee would assess the state of power supply at the airports and provide solutions that would ensure uninterrupted power supply, Olukunle said.

In its report on the Dec. 10, 2005 Sosoliso plane crash, the Accident Investigation and Prevention Bureau recommended the need for uninterrupted power supply to airfield lighting at all the airports.

According to the report, FAAN had always been putting on the airfield lighting at some airports and shutting them off at others due to lack of funds to maintain power supply on a regular basis.
