We Are Doing Everything Possible to Address Rain Leakage at MMIA – FAAN

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, on Wednesday said roof leakages experienced at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos, was due to upgrade of facilities at the airport.

Videos of heavy downpour experienced inside the “D Wing” of the Terminal of the airport have gone viral in the Nigerian social media.

But FAAN, on Wednesday, said the leakages were caused by a heavy rain accompanied by wind storm.

A statement signed by Henrietta Yakubu, FAAN spokesperson, said the agency is doing everything possible to address the situation.

Mrs. Yakubu explained that the leakages were directly connected to the civil engineering works going on at the roof top at that location, which temporarily hindered the agency’s engineers from replacing the old roof members with new ones.

“It was practically impossible at location due to its altitude and slipperiness while the rains lasted, but work immediately resumed after the rain subsided, and the integrity of roof was restored,” Mrs. Yakubu said in the statement.

“We want to state clearly that this defect did not affect operations in any way or at any time at the Terminal, and that the structural integrity of the Terminal is still very much intact.

“FAAN reiterates her commitment to a safe, secure and improved facilitation at the nation’s airports,” she added.

The facility upgrade, she said, was part of FAAN’s efforts to implement the newly introduced Executive Orders, signed by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.
