FG fires 20 FAAN directors, managers
About 21 senior officials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria were on Wednesday sacked in a major shake-up.
Those affected, including directors, general managers and deputy general managers, were reportedly handed their termination of appointment letters.
Sources at the head office of FAAN in Lagos told our correspondent that no fewer than 10 general managers were reportedly demoted. They were said to have earlier been improperly promoted.
It was learnt from an official of the Ministry of Aviation that the sacking was the first batch of the shake-up planned by the government to reposition FAAN.
Stakeholders said the Federal Government had been concerned about certain issues at FAAN such as the engagement of about 40 general managers, the creation of many directorates that brought about duplication of duties and raised the authority’s monthly overhead to an estimated N800m.
Sources said the government planned to reduce the number of workers by way of restructuring in order to cushion the effects of the current economic crisis.
