FAAN sacks 22 staff in major shake up

A major tsunami hit the Federal Airports Authority Nigeria (FAAN) on Wednesday as over 22 persons including Directors, General Managers and Deputy General Managers were affected in a major shake up.

There are indications that the Managing Director and the Director of Human Resources have been spared in the ongoing restructuring.

A source hinted that of the 11 directorates in FAAN, only one was spared.

A source also hinted that many general managers that were not properly placed have been demoted.

According to the sources, the sack is the first batch of major job erasure planned by government to reposition the airport authority.

The restructuring, another source said, has received the approval of the Ministry of Aviation, which is planning to right size the airport authority.

As tension stricken workers gathered in groups on Wednesday, the Ministry of Aviation it was learnt is poised to carry out proper placement of personnel in the authority.

The restructuring in the airport authority it was learnt is a fallout of a panel’s report headed by the Head of Service, Mrs Winifred Oyo–Ita, which recommended proper placement in the authority.
