The consignments which were cleared over the weekend from Apapa wharf are already at the premises of the agency in Lagos.

Speaking on this development, Fola Akinkuotu, the managing director of NAMA, said the installation of these landing aids which would commence soon, was part of the agency’s effort to ensure that aircraft land in adverse weather condition especially during the harmattan season that occurs in the country from late November through January.

 He also revealed that the second phase of the project involving the installation of ILS/DME in Kano, Port Harcourt and Katsina airports would happen as soon as the Lagos and Abuja installations were completed, stressing that the choice of these airports was informed by the severe weather conditions prevalent there.
