FAAN has no plans to shutdown Port Harcourt

Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) Managing Director, Richard Aisuebeogun, stated the agency has no plans to close down Port Harcourt International Airport due to power disruptions (AllAfrica, 26-Aug-2010). Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) has been threatening to cut off power supply to the airport as FAAN owes it USD48,909 (NGN7.4 million) in unpaid bills. Mr Aisuebeogun stated management has established measures to resolve any differences between FAAN and PHCN.
