World Environment Day fallout: FAAN assures on safe, healthy airport

FEDERAL Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has emphasized the need for a safe and healthy airport environment as it celebrated the 2018 World Environment Day on June 5, 2018.

The Authority, in collaboration with Nigeria Environmental Society, organized a lecture on the theme of this year’s celebration – “Beat Plastic Pollution” which was held in Lagos to mark the day.

The Managing Director/Chief Executive of FAAN, Engr. Saleh Dunoma, who was ably represented by the Director of Engineering Services, Engr. Salisu Daura, in his welcome address, reiterated the importance of integrating human interactions in our development plans in order to ensure a safe and healthy environment. He joined the global environment body to point our attention to the challenges of plastic pollution coming from all facets of human activities.

Plastic pollution is when plastic has gathered in an area and has begun to negatively impact the natural environment and create problems for plants, wildlife and even human population. Of a fact, plastic is an incredibly useful material but it is also made from toxic compounds known to cause illness and because it is meant for durability it is not biodegradable.

FAAN’s boss pledged that the Authority would do everything possible to ensure that all plastic materials and other wastes generated around the nation’s airports are properly disposed to prevent the hazards associated with them.

FAAN assures the general public of a clean and safe airport environment as it is committed to its core values of Safety, Security and Comfort.
