Lagos — The Minister of Aviation, Stella Adaeze Oduah has refuted claims in some sections of the media that foreign airlines are threatening to pull out of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja, following the recent bomb blast on the UN building.
Speaking through her spokesman, Joe Obi, the minister said it was not true because no airline, local or foreign has complained about the security measures put in place at the nation's airport let alone pulling out.
Some newspapers had reported foreign airlines are opting to relocate from their Abuja operations to Lagos or to stop in the interim, pending when they consider Abuja safer.
Similarly, Mr. Sam Adurogboye, Media Assistance to Director General, NCAA said NCAA has no knowledge of the threat. "It's not to my knowledge. I don't know where they got that information from."
