On Tuesday evening, FAAN
announced that the airport car hire service at the Abuja airport had been suspended with immediate effect.

FAAN noted that this was as a result of the unresolved factional dispute amongst the car hire operators, which had been affecting airport car hire service operations.

In a statement by Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, Director, Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, the agency said, consequent upon this suspension, FAAN management had advised the general public and all airport users, particularly passengers, to use secured alternative means of transportation or E-hailing services in and out of the airport.

“The Management of FAAN regrets any inconvenience this necessary suspension may cause our esteemed passengers, airport users and the general public. Normal Car Hire Services resumes as soon as their differences are resolved,” Yakubu-Funtua added.

Yakubu-Funtua, however, said that the issue had been resolved after a meeting with the concessionaires of the car hire services and the service providers, adding that they had been called back to resume operations.
