Nigerian Airports Still Not Certified by ICAO
Unsatisfactory safety and security arrangements at the Nigerian Airports have halted the certification from the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
A few years ago, Dr Harold Demuren, a former Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) was reported saying that the NCAA could not certify any airport in Nigeria because none of them satisfied the minimum requirements for certification, as set by the ICAO.
According to Chinedu Eze, the Nigerian government must ensure security, in addition to improved infrastructure, at the airports.
To date, no airport in Nigeria has proper security fencing, although some have perimeter fencing.
