Aviation Nigeria

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria(FAAN) has began a removal of all advertisement material on billboards and structures which it considers illegal along the internal road of the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos.

This was made through a press statement on Thursday 6 June 2013 by the agency's General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr. Yakubu Dati.

FAAN maintained that the placement of certain advert material infringed advertisement rights of agency as some organization responsible for the placing of the advert material did not receive permission to do so.

Mr. Yakuba Dati stated that every advert placement within the airport premises, including the internal and access roads must be legally authorized by FAAN, which has the right over all airport land as contained in the act establishing the agency.

The exercise to remove all illegal advertisements at all airports became imminent as some companies with an existing concession with FAAN have failed to to honor their contract terms.

Yakubu Dati stated that though defying the terms of the contract, some companies have still continued to receive payments from third parties for these advert payments.

The exercise which is to progress nationwide the agency maintains is among its transformationprogram aimed at re-structuring systems of revenue collection and generation by the agency


  1. So even adverts use concession agreements?

  2. That is an excellent move. At least other more serious investors will take advantage of the opportunity. Kudo's FAAN

  3. How do business ethics affect people in this country? You refuse to pay for something you charge others for. Terrible! Brilliant move by FAAN.
