The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has taken the decision to suspend taxi services at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.
Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, the Director of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection at FAAN, made this announcement in a statement on Thursday.
The suspension was implemented due to an ongoing conflict among car hire operators at the airport, which has been causing disruptions to the airport car hire service operations.
As a result, FAAN has temporarily halted the service until the dispute is resolved.

“The FAAN wishes to inform the general public that the airport car hire service at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja has been suspended with immediate effect,” stated the authority in its official statement.
“This is as a result of the unresolved factional dispute amongst the car hire operators which has been affecting airport car hire service operations.
“Consequent upon this suspension, FAAN management advises the general public and all airport users, particularly our esteemed passengers to use secured alternative means of transportation or E-hailing services in and out of the airport.
“The management of FAAN regrets any inconvenience this necessary suspension may cause our esteemed passengers, airport users and the general public.”
FAAN assured the public that normal car hire services would resume as soon as the operators resolved their differences.
