Don't Criticize for the sake of criticism - Olalerin

Aviation Nigeria

Regional Manager South-West of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Edward Olarerin, has expressed dismay over criticisms from certain quarters regarding the ongoing renovations at airports nation-wide.

Olalerin lamented the rave of critics who have continued to use several channels to criticize developments in the airports in the ongoing aviation transformation agenda.

"You don’t just criticize for the sake of criticism,” Olarerin said

Officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria(FAAN) had earlier carried out a customer service survey to sample opinions on developments implemented by renovations which were taking place at the airports and the results of this indicated that patronage and usage were on the increase.

A passenger who was part of the survey expressed her opinions as thus: "I have come to understand that people look at everything you do from sectional interest and religion. No matter what you do people who feel that you don’t belong to their religion or that you don’t belong to their tribe will always run you down, and that is why it will be difficult for us to be one united nation.”

“What we have on ground is good. We have massive development going on, from the terminals to the cargo shed. Work is going on everywhere. A lot of changes have taken place, what else do they want? I don’t believe in eye service; I say things as they are" Olalerin also added

Chief Executive Officer of Overland Airways, Captain Edward Boyo noted recently that the rehabilitated airports have improved passenger facilitation and are attracting more people to travel by air.

“The airports were horrible before now but as all can observe, there is airport modernization going on. Take Lagos for instance, the old domestic terminal (General Aviation Terminal); look at the great difference that has been achieved. The desire to travel has increased. Airlines are now getting more patronage. By improving the airports, you have improved the airlines,” Boyo stated.
