Car Hire Operators in Nigeria Airports have threatened to institute legal action against the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) if it should go ahead with its alleged plan to enforce extra charges as planned.
A report by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday quoted the Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the association, Alhaji M. A. Yinusa, as saying the FAAN was considering imposing an extra levy on car hire operators..
According to Yinusa, there is an alleged plan by FAAN to charge each car hire operator N500 or each trip made from the airports to passengers destinations while they will also be made to pay toll fee into and out of the airports on every trip. This is in addition to the N25,000 annual renewable registration fee currently charged the operators.
“We are already talking to them on this matter through our lawyers who have written to the management twice without any response and we know that the people are very crafty because it is in their character to ignore all entreaties in a matter like this and later come out to say a decision has been jointly taken by affected organization and it would not be reversible.”
