Federal Government in new legal tussle with Bi-Courtney
The Federal Government has gone to court again to have the concession given to Bi-Courtney to operate the MMA2 Terminal at Lagos reduced from 36 to 12 years. Bi-Courtney was awarded the concession in 2003 to design, build and operate the domestic terminal for an agreed number of years to recoup its investment.
The move comes after the much criticised and controversial ejection of Maevis, another concession holder, from Lagos and Abuja airports by the FAAN. Meanwhile, it is reported that the current MD of FAAN, George Uriesi, spent N228 million on the reparation of three generators at Abuja Airport in 2009, against all financial rules. The FAAN is also accused of several other fraudulent transactions.
