Nigeria: FAAN Lists Agencies to Interface With Passengers At Airports

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has listed the six agencies approved to interface with passengers at the country's airports henceforth.

In a public notice issued at the weekend, FAAN informed airlines, passengers and the general public of the new development.

"The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria hereby serves notice to Airlines, passengers and the general public that in compliance with the provisions of the Executive Order recently approved by the Presidency, only the under-listed security agencies have been given approval to interface with passengers at our Terminals.

"The affected agencies are: Nigeria Immigration Services (NIS), The Nigeria Customs Services (NCS), National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), State Security Services (SSS), Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit (EOD) and Nigerian Agricultural Quarantine Services (NAQS)."

FAAN said in the statement that" it has reconfigured the affected agencies' orientation at the airports as follows: Nigerian Immigration Services (NIS) and National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) will now operate at Arrival and Departure halls; Nigeria Customs Services (NCS) will operate at the Arrival Hall only; the State Security Services (SSS) and Nigerian Agricultural Quarantine Services (NAQS) will operate at the Cargo Terminals only, while the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit, (EOD) will be operating at the baggage hall."

"Consequently, all agencies required by law to be on uniform while on duty must be fully kitted at all times with their name tags conspicuously visible and must remain within the confines of their responsibilities, the agency said, even as it urged management of the affected agencies to ensure strict compliance with the directive.
