Power outage disrupts operations at Lagos Airport

LAGOS—THE Muritala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos and the staff housing quarters around the airport was, yesterday, thrown into darkness that lasted for an hour.

Passengers, who were processing their departure flight and those arriving the country, had to endure the darkness as they waited until electricity was eventually restored.

 Reacting to the power outage, the General Manager, Public Affairs, FAAN, Mrs Herrietta Yakubu said the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, FAAN   has contacted the South West Regional Manager in charge of the airport and has confirmed to her that power has been restored to the airport.

However, a major aviation stakeholder, who immediately reacted to the power outage said: “FAAN is expected to have independent power line from Ikeja and Ayobo transmission lines as planned for Muritala Muhammed Airport, MMA, in 2007; what has happened to that proposal? This is a shame on all of us including the NCAA.

“Again, how did  the NCAA certify the MMA if the power problem, that could affect the airport safety facilities, has not been resolved? We have a long way to go with the NCAA safety oversight functions.”

Now, just imagine if a plane was taxiing to take off or actually approaching to land during this blackout.
Can any sane mind imagine this insane scenario?

Anyone who wants to do a complete study of Nigeria should simply go to study the history and evolution (or lack of it) of the Lagos International Airport.

For a country that makes BILLIONS OF DOLLARS ANNUALLY, it is simply gut-wrenching and dumbfounding.

When will Nigeria develop? We should be having 24 hours electricity in Nigeria. May God bless Nigeria
