Aviation ministry sues for peace as striking workers block access roads to Lagos airport

Nigerias Aviation Ministry has expressed its displeasure at the ongoing warning strike by the aviation unions amidst efforts at meeting the demands of the workers.

The ministry made this known in a statement issued Monday by its Head, Press and Public Affairs, Odutayo Oluseyi.

Aviation workers had on Monday blocked major access roads to both the international and domestic wings of the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos, to protest poor working conditions.

The situation resulted in intensive gridlock along airport roads in Ikeja, leaving several passengers stranded.

Reports said the entrance of the airport terminals was also affected as vehicular movement was disrupted.

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), had issued travel advisories to travellers urging them to make contingency plans to avoid missing their flights and appointments due to the workers strike.

The strike is unnecessary as it will increase the hardship on our citizens, affect flight schedules, lead to economic losses and negatively impact our rating globally, the aviation ministry said in its reaction Monday afternoon.
