A major shake up has hit the Federal Airports Authority Nigeria (FAAN) yesterday as directors, general managers and deputy general managers were affected in the restructuring in the aviation agency.
According to a competent source, some general managers that were hitherto not properly placed have been equally demoted.
Although it was not clear which officials were affected, LEADERSHIP gathered that the sack is the first batch of a major job cut planned by government to reposition the airport authority.
It was also gathered that the restructuring has received the approval of the Federal Ministry of Aviation, which is planning to cut down the bloated size of the workers of the airport 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.
