FEC, AWARDS OVER 3 TRILLION NAIRA FOR SUPPLY AND INSTALLATION OF CUSTOMIZED EXPLOSIVE AND NARCOTICS DETECTION SCREENING SYSTEMS                                                                                                                 17-11-23

By Sadiq Aminu                                                       The Federal Executive Council, FEC, has approved the award of over 3 trillion Naira contract for the supply and installation of customised explosive and narcotic detection screening systems for 5 International Airports across the country.

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Mr. Festus Keyamo, stated this while briefing State House correspondents on the memoranda he presented at the meeting.

He said the screening systems would be installed at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, Murtala Muhammad International Airport, Lagos, Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, and the two others in Enugu and Port Harcourt.

The Minister said the equipment would avoid travellers from having their bags opened for manual check, which disorganises the content of their luggage.

He also said FEC had approved the signing of bilateral air service agreement with the Republic of Guyana, a South American country.

He explained that the agreement would open direct routes to South American countries, where trade activities are envisaged to flourish.

Also briefing newsmen, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Lateef Fagbemi, said FEC had approved Nigeria’s Draft Human Rights Reports for transmission to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights.

He stated that the approval was for the 4th cycle of the United Nations Universal Periodic Review, in fulfillment of the practice of reporting human rights records.

The Attorney General explained that the Report had dismissed the insinuation that Nigeria employed children in the Armed Forces and discriminated against women, which emanated from information that some areas denied the womenfolk right to inherit their fathers’ property.
