About 3 weeks after the Kaduna airport started operations as an alternative to the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja which was shut down for repairs,  some members of the House of Representatives have raised safety concerns over operations at the Kaduna International Airport.

Speaking at a plenary session, a member said:

“The House notes and is disturbed that there are allegations that frailing installations and procedure at the Kaduna International Airport grossly falls short of international standard and poses great danger to employees, passengers and the general public.

“It further notes and is disturbed that some aviation marketers have been allegedly transferring Jet A1 product from bulk road tankers directly into fuel browsers right on the tarmac at the Kaduna International Airport and discharging same into commercial aircrafts.”

To this end, the House has directed its Committee on Aviation to ascertain the operational safety at the airport.

The committee is also expected to assess the extent of work done at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport and report back to the House in one week.
