Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) managing director Rabiu Yadudu has inaugurated a taxi app loading booth at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja.
Mr Yadudu said on Thursday the move would increase the country’s gross domestic products.
He explained that the airport was chosen as a pilot scheme among airports in the country and that the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos would be the next.
According to him, the project will improve safety, security, comfort and ensure development in the aviation sector.
“This is a good development. We fear changes naturally. Sometimes, when change occurs we will be proud of it. I am assuring taxi and commercial drivers that this will actually lead to laudable development,” noted the FAAN director. “It is in furtherance conformity with international standard and will equally add to Gross Domestic Products of Nigeria.”
Mr Yadudu urged commercial bodies to support the project’s sustainability and enforcement for the hope of generality of Nigerian people.
