Three hour blackout at airport rectified – FAAN

Abuja – The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) says it has rectified  the electrical problem responsible for Friday’s three-hour power outage at  the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA) in Abuja.

Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, FAAN’s Head of Communications at the airport, disclosed this on Saturday in Abuja while speaking with journalists on the incident.

There was a power interruption at the airport between midnight on Friday and 3 a.m on Saturday.

The FAAN official who said power was restored in full afterwards said the incident was as a result of maintenance work.

“The power interruption was due to an electrical maintenance work the authority (FAAN) carried out at the airport,’’ she said.

Yakubu however said the power interruption was not an incident which disrupted operations at the airport.

“We had earlier informed members of the public about the maintenance FAAN was about to carry out. However, we are still sorry for the inconveniences,’’ she said.

The FAAN official said the maintenance work was to ensure all facilities at the airport were in good shape for better service delivery.

“The system maintenance of the high voltage side of the Terminal Building Power Transformer at the airport was carried out and it is functioning well now,” she said. (NAN)
