MMIA Lagos remains Nigeria’s foremost airport – NCPC ES Pam

The executive secretary, Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam, has noted that the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, had always been the foremost airport in the country.

 According to a press statement issued by the commission’s head of media, Celestine Toruka, Rev. Pam made the remark recently in Lagos during a meeting and inspection of facilities at the Lagos Airport with the regional general manager, South-west, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the airport manager, MMIA, Mrs. Shin-Aba.

 The statement indicated that the NCPC boss, who spoke through the Commission’s director of operations, Rev. Amos Yohanna, said the meeting became necessary as the Commission would “soon commence the 2020 General Pilgrimage exercise in December; hence the need to meet with the airport officials in order to have a seamless operations this year.”

 According to the statement, Rev. Pam said the MMIA Lagos “plays a very critical role in Christian pilgrimage operations as pilgrims from the South-west including Kwara and Edo are usually airlifted to Israel from that airport.”

 “Because of Covid-19 pandemic, so many restrictions and protocols have been introduced globally to check the rate of infection which is for the good of the people. One of the reasons for the meeting is to know the restrictions so as to guide the pilgrims and to facilitate this year’s operations.

“The Commission has been monitoring closely updates with the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 as well as reports from the Israeli authorities in order to keep abreast with the Covid-19 situation in Nigeria and Israel,” the statement read in part.

 Rev. Pam said further that the Commission would need the airport officials’ assistance in order to know the rules and protocols that would guide its operations at the airport, this year.

 Earlier, Mrs. Shin-Aba said over the years the MMIA had had good working relationships with the NCPC.
