Press Release

The Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Engr Saleh Dunoma has reiterated the resolution of the Authority to ensure absolute compliance of all tanker drivers to the rules of engagement, as far as parking and operating around the airport environment is concerned.

He stated this recently in Lagos at an interactive forum with a team of journalists from the League of Airport and Aviation Correspondents.

While responding to questions from the journalists, Engr Dunoma noted that the notorious act of parking tankers along the airport road would no longer be tolerated as the act was capable of jeopardizing safety and security of the airport, which would adversely affect airport users.

He noted that an adequate parking space had already been provided for the tanker drivers by the Authority and there was a standing agreement between the Authority and leaders of the tanker drivers’ union to only make use of the aviation designated trailer parks for parking purposes, except during loading or discharging of fuel at the tank farms.

Engr Saleh, therefore, directed relevant security agencies to rise up to the challenge of enforcing strict compliance with the extant rules of parking for tanker drivers within the airport environment.
