Nigerian airports: NCAA raises alarm over poor infrastructure, insecurity


The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) says some factors affect night travel operations.

The federal agency listed paucity of funds, poor infrastructure, and insecurity.

Capt. Musa Nuhu, NCAA Director-General spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Citing the African Development Bank (AfDB) report, Nuhu noted that Nigeria would require more than N1.5 trillion to fix airports.

Nuhu said airports planning to operate beyond dusk required sizeable financial outlay and compliance with conditions for safe landing and take-off of aircraft.

The conditions include an adequate number of competent personnel, adequate power supply, and availability of ancillary service providers.

The NCAA said security risks and traffic levels must be taken seriously in 24-hour airport operations.

Nuhu expressed concern about kidnapping and robbery being recorded in many parts of Nigeria.

“The evolving security challenges make night operations dangerous because of many airports.

“The risks are enormous and seriously impacting airports’ operations, airport workers and passengers and crew even in the daytime”, Nuhu added.
