Nigeria, Abuja, The Vice President of Nigeria, Pro.Yemi Osinbajo has said the Federal Executive Council has agreed to concession the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos and Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja.

In a Twitter post via @NGRPresident,  Osinbajo said this on Monday while speaking at the fifth edition of the presidential quarterly business forum which held at the State House, Abuja. “I am pleased to say that the federal executive council (FEC) has approved the concession of the Lagos and Abuja airports,” Osinbajo.

He noted that the Federal Government’s concern on ease of doing business in Nigeria was to ensure a general overhaul of the business environment, which he said, involved the concession of all airports in the country.

Osinbajo who submitted that a partnership with the private sector operators was a decision in the right direction, pointed out that it also serves as the forum for the government to receive both criticisms and suggestions from the private sector.

He also said it had become imperative to improve the capacity of government agencies which regulate business activities.In another development, the zero accident score recorded by Nigerian aviation industry was yesterday hinged on enhanced safety regulations implemented by airlines and their regulators.
