The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has said it will include the construction of perimeter fence in all airports across the country in the 2019 budget.

The General Manager, Corporate Affairs, FAAN, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, said on Tuesday that the spate of runway incursions and security breaches across the airports in the country remained a great concern to the agency.

“FAAN is worried about the issues of security across airports in the country, and has resolved to capture the construction of perimeter fences in all airports in the 2019 budget,” she said.

Yakubu also stated that the incident at the Akure airport was being addressed, adding that the airport had perimeter fence but there was a gap that enabled the cattle to enter the runway.

She explained that as part of measures to further strengthen the security of the airports across the country, the agency had stopped the renewal of On Duty Cards for former workers of airlines and FAAN to ensure strict personnel monitoring.
