Air passengers were again stranded at the Lagos Airport on Friday due to power outage.

However, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has tendered an apology to passengers and other airport users over a temporary power outage at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on Friday.

The outage, which happened at a section of the airport, resulted in passengers being stranded at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport on Saturday.

It was gathered that the departure lounge of the International Airport was the most affected.

However in a statement on Saturday by its Acting General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Faithful A. Hope-Ivbaze (Mrs.), FAAN explained that the outage was caused by Friday’s rain, which came with winds and storms.

She added, “However, our engineers quickly discovered the fault and liaised with the Ejigbo duty/area control office of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria to resolve the problem. Normalcy has since been restored in the affected area.

“FAAN is Committed to our core values of Safety, Security and Comfort.”
