The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has stopped the receipt of all revenue payments in cash to the Authority and other government agencies at the nation’s airports nationwide.
A statement issued by the General Manager, Corporate Affairs of FAAN stated that “”further to the Federal Government of Nigeria’s intervention in promoting
Efficiency and Transparency in the Business Environment (Executive Order O1), government revenue payments at all airports across Nigeria will now be made electronically effective from May 14, 2018”.
According to her, all payments will now be done electronically and through approved channels.
Nonetheless, she said “this policy applies to government revenue and exempts Access gates, Food courts, Shops and other non-governmental (private) businesses operating at the airports.
“To ensure the seamless implementation of this policy, the Authority has deployed Point of Sales (POS) machines to payment points across the airport and official arrangements for direct transfers.
“Please note that from the effective date, FAAN will no longer accept cash as a mode of payment for official government revenue at airports. Consequently, whoever pays cash to any government official will be doing so at his/her own risk. We look forward to enabling seamless travel airport processes for all passengers at Nigerian airports”.
