Federal Airport of Nigeria has reacted to the 20 seconds video showing the Gate ‘D’ Departure area of the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, which was flooded by a heavy downpour that flowed directly through the damaged roofs.
The Agency on Wednesday said the leaking roof in a part of the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, was due to ongoing construction works at the airport.
FAAN, in a statement signed by its Acting General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mrs Herrienta Yakubu in Lagos, said the upgrade was in compliance with the recent Executive Order issued by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.
“It is regrettable that the story, which was capable of creating fear in the minds of intending passengers, was not based on assessment of the said facility by the reporters.
“This is more so because the reporters could easily have cross-checked their facts with our Corporate Affairs Department before going public with such a sensitive issue.
“Following this malicious video clip targeted to tarnish the authority’s hard earned reputation, management wishes to put the records straight that the leaking roof was as a result of the on-going works at the MMIA, Lagos.
