The Federal Government has commenced the process leading to the  concession  of major airports across the country.

Nnamdi-Azikiwe-Airport, Abuja

The Minister of State for Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika in Abuja yesterday, commenced the process with the inauguration of the  Project Steering Committee and Project Delivery Committee.

Sirika said the Project Steering Committee with him as Chairman, was to provide the general direction and steer the course of Public Private Partnership in the aviation sector.

He said: “The driving force behind the federal government’s resolve to concession the airports were the overriding national interest in ensuring the establishment and sustenance of world class standards in both infrastructural development and service delivery.

“The misgivings some people have expressed concerning the exercise was borne out of the misconception that concession is synonymous with privatization.  The institutions being concessioned remained the properties of the federal government.”
