COVID-19: Nigerian Airport Workers' Salaries Slashed

ABUJA, NIGERIA - The salaries of airport workers in Nigeria has been slashed. 

According to a  circular to staff dated May 19, 2020, the Management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, the development came sequel to airport closures occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.

The FAAN General Manager, Administration, M.D. Musa, who signed the memo said, "This is to notify all staff that due to the dwindling revenue generation amidst COVID-19 pandemic, management may not be able to pay full salary to staff as from May 2020.

“However, as soon as revenue improves, the balance will be paid. 

"This measure is to ensure the survival of the organisation.”

It would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari had shut the country’s airspace and airports, both local and international in March as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The President’s directive, however, permitted emergency flights such as those for medical and humanitarian purposes.
