A major shake-up hit the aviation industry yesterday as the federal government sacked directors, general managers and deputy general managers of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
The sack was part of the planned restructuring of the agency which was said to have been in the pipeline since the new administration took over.
Also affected were general managers who were said to have not been properly placed in the organization. Those sacked have been directed to hand over to the most senior person in each of the departments.
Many of the affected senior officials also confirmed the sack yesterday though there was no official statement from the federal government, although the sack was reportedly approved by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
