UPDATE: We Didn't Ban Taxi at Airport - FAAN
By Dipo Omoware
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria says it did not issue any directive banning taxis from picking up passengers at the premisies of any airport contrary to information making rounds on social media.
The message did not originate from FAAN. Uber and taxify are free to drop passengers at our airports. https://t.co/dTJb1muhBO— FAAN (@FAAN_Official) December 10, 2019
On Monday 9th December, Twitter user @OkohAmodu had shared a picture online of a signage reportedly at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport banning certain types of taxis from picking up passengers.

The FAAN responded a few hours later that the sign has been taken down and the matter was being resolved.
Thank You for the feedback, the signage has been removed, be assured the issue would be resolved.— FAAN (@FAAN_Official) December 9, 2019
