The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC) and Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company Limited (SNEPCo) have inaugurated a new Arrival Hall “E” at Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) old terminal in Lagos.

The new arrival hall has been remodelled to ease immigration checks and improve passenger facilitation.

The project was initiated about a year ago by the Comptroller of Immigration MMIA, Lagos Command, Comptroller Adeola Adesokan. The project was completed within six weeks through the intervention of NNPC/SNEPCo.

Among other improvements, the arrival hall was redesigned and redecorated with the number of clearance counters increased from seven to 32 along with IT equipment and facility upgrades.

The Chief Upstream Investment Officer (CUIO), NNPC Upstream Investment Management Services (NUIMS), Bala Wunti, who was represented by the External Affairs Manager, Mrs Julie Utang, remarked that the project “is a testament to what can be achieved when organisations come together.”

The remarks were echoed by SNEPCo Managing Director, Mrs Elohor Aiboni, who said, “Let today be a reminder of the potential that lies in collaborative efforts and the positive impact it can have on our nation’s infrastructure and overall development.

“The project is not merely a physical transformation; it is a symbol of our dedication to fostering seamless passenger journeys and upholding Nigeria’s reputation as a welcoming destination,” she said.

Minister of Interior, Dr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, said: “History is waiting to be written. I’m happy NNPC, SNEPCo and their co-venturers have chosen to be on the right side of history.”

He stated that what NIS has done in facilitating the project is the manifestation of the reforms that have been carried out in the service, adding that the era of treating government business as no one’s business is gone forever in the service.

Managing Director and Chief Executive of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, Alhaji Kabir Yusuf Mohammed, who was represented by the Director of Airports Operations, Captain Mukhtar Yusuf Muye, while appreciating the initiator and sponsors of the project, said the renovation of the facility is a symbol of progress and a beacon of national growth.
