The management of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has finally woken from their slumber to initiate the process of constructing a befitting corporate headquarters after over 40 years.
This is coming after the admonition of the minister of transport, Rt Hon Chibuike Amaechi to the Authority to get a befitting corporate headquarters instead of the makeshift building it has been using as office.
The process commenced with the invitation for competent and reputable companies to submit Expression of Interest (EOI), for the design and supervision of the construction of a new corporate headquarters for the organization.
According to the management of FAAN, the project, which was advertised in several national dailies and the Federal Tenders Journal on Monday January 11, 2016 would be funded through the Authority’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) budget for the year 2016.
Submission of “Expression of Interest” for the project would close at exactly 11:30am on Monday, February 29, 2016.
Amaechi had on his first visit to the corporate headquarters of FAAN directed the Authority to commence procedure for the building of a befitting corporate headquarters, after wondering what it has been doing over the years with all the money it is making.
