Nigerian Aviation Authority to recover N22b debts with anti-graft agencies
By Oyise Oghene
General Manager, Public Affairs of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mr. Akin Olukunle has said that FAAN would recover its N22billion debts using the anti-graft agencies like the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and others.
Speaking to Biztellers in his office, Mr. Olukunle stressed that using the anti-graft agencies to recover its debt was the next line of action that FAAN would embark upon because the matter has degenerated into that of corruption.
“We are going to involve some anti-graft agencies because it is a matter of corruption, it is part of the vices that the government is fighting against, you cannot just collect services and enjoy them without paying for it. It is not right. It is not done anywhere in the world” he stressed.
Mr. Olukunle further noted that such action was coming on the heels of the findings of the Presidential Committee on Restructuring and Rationalisation of Federal Government Parastatals, Commissions and Agencies, led by a former Head of Service of the Federation, Mr. Steve Oronsanye.
He pointed out that some of FAAN’s debtors were still in existence and they must pay what they owe to FAAN.
