Nigeria's Federal Ministry of Aviation told (01-Feb-2011) the Senate Aviation Committee that the USD76 million Bilateral Air Service Agreement (BASA) Fund approved in the 2010 Budget meant for the upgrade of airport infrastructure is still in the possession of the Central Bank of Nigeria (Daily Independent, 01-Feb-2011). Some of the projects executed include installation of 10 3D Rapiscan body scanners at Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja; Port Harcourt and Kano Airport, as well as 22 walk-through metal detectors and 14 baggage scanning machines installed at various airports, including Presidential wings.
