In preparation for the inauguration of President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has designated the Lagos, Kaduna and Minna airports for the arrival of some foreign dignitaries for the event.

The three airports will be used in addition to the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

This was disclosed on Monday, May 25, 2015, by FAAN Managing Director, Saleh Dunoma to ThisDay.

Dunoma explained that the three airports were being used in order to ensure seamless operations at the Abuja airport.

“FAAN is doing this relocation of our Nigerian-based aircraft so as to create enough space at the airport for bigger aircraft that will bring the visitors and dignitaries for the inauguration,” he said.

 “We are ready for the visitors. We are concluding the finishing touches expected to make movement at the airports hitch free,” he added.

 About 50 Presidents are expected in the country for the inauguration which will hold on Friday, May 29, 2015.
