The House of Representatives on Wednesday mandated its committee on aviation (when constituted) to investigate the concession of some airports by the Ministry of Aviation in the immediate past administration.

This followed the adoption of a motion by Kama Nkemkanma who said the nation’s most viable airports had been commissioned to foreign firms through Federal Executive Council’s resolutions which, he said, deviated from due process, public accountability and established laws.

According to him, the eventual outcome of the opaque concession exercise is the enrichment of a few unpatriotic Nigerians and their foreign cohorts at the detriment of Nigerians and the eventual enslavement of these public infrastructures to foreigners for many decades.

He said, “Our major airports in Lagos, Abuja, and Kano have remained consistently subjects of controversies due to entrenched personal interests that have undermined the laws of the land, irrespective of the occasional efforts of our anti-corruption agencies like the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission.

Nkemkanma said Nigerians were currently facing job loss and future generations’ economic hardship due to the airports’ concession policy.
