The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has halted commercial taxi services at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja with immediate effect.
A statement by Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, the
Director, Public Affairs & Consumer Protection, FAAN said the suspension is “as a result of the unresolved factional dispute amongst the car hire operators which has been affecting airport car hire service operations.”
The statement said this is “consequent upon this suspension, FAAN Management advises the general public and all airport users, particularly our esteemed passengers to use secured alternative means of transportation or E-hailing services in and out of the airport.”
“The Management of FAAN regrets any inconvenience this necessary suspension may cause our esteemed passengers, airport users and the general public. Normal Car Hire Services resumes as soon as their differences are resolved” the statement.
