Gombe And Kebbi Airports Shut Down Due To Debts Owed

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has closed down Gombe and Kebbi airports as a result of over N800 million debts.
The shutdown took effect yesterday.

FAAN, in a Notice To Air Men (NOTAM), sent to the airports yesterday, announced the withdrawal of men of the safety, fire rescue and aviation security personnel attached to the two airports.

FAAN, two weeks ago, warned that its services would be withdrawn should the two state governments failed to clear their debts.

“But the agency has vowed to forge ahead with its plans to close state airports owing the organisation,” a source said yesterday.
