Led by Managing Director Mrs. Olubunmi Kuku, FAAN has demonstrated a significant turnaround from previous lower rankings to its current high score. This transformation reflects the agency’s dedication to implementing substantial reforms aimed at improving the business environment in Nigeria.

The event, presided over by Vice President Kashim Shettima, underscored the importance of assessing various MDAs (Ministries, Departments, and Agencies) on their contributions to enhancing the ease of doing business across the country. FAAN’s recognition as a “Successful” agency in the Ease of Doing Business scorecard by the Federal Government highlights its commitment and effectiveness in fostering a conducive business climate.

Mr. Henry Agbebire, FAAN’s Director of Special Duties overseeing PEBEC, emphasized the agency’s proactive approach in adopting key reform initiatives. He expressed FAAN’s ongoing commitment not only to sustain the implemented reforms but also to achieve a perfect 100% score in future evaluations. Looking ahead to the next phase of the 120-Day RRA, FAAN aims to further enhance its operations through rigorous Third Party Validation.

In pursuit of these goals, FAAN has implemented several strategic measures. These include the development of new Service Legal Agreements (SLAs) benchmarked against international standards, such as those of Oliver Tambo Airport, CPH Airport Denmark, and the Airport Authority of India. Additionally, FAAN has enhanced airport infrastructure with improvements such as high-speed Internet deployment, CCTV installation and maintenance, and the introduction of QR Codes to streamline passenger services.

Since assuming office, Mrs. Kuku has consistently emphasized FAAN’s commitment to prioritizing passenger comfort, improving airport facilities, and meeting the evolving needs of travelers. This proactive stance underscores FAAN’s role not just in regulatory compliance but also in driving positive change within Nigeria’s aviation sector.
