The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has refuted claims of procuring the 70th Anniversary Edition of the Toyota Land Cruiser, valued at N200 million, for its Managing Director (MD), Mr. Kabir Yusuf Muhammed.

According to a statement issued on Saturday by FAAN’s Director of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, NewsNGR.com’s report was dismissed. It had suggested that Mr. Muhammed allocated N200 million for the acquisition of a 70th Anniversary Edition Toyota Land Cruiser for his personal use as an official vehicle.

However, FAAN in the statement expressly denied the reports, saying since the assumption of office, the FAAN MD does not have any official car and did not buy any for anyone.

“When some old vehicles were refurbished for the newly appointed Directors, the MD was given one but he had to return it because the vehicles did not go round.

“A contract for the Procurement of operation vehicles was awarded by the former Managing Director. They are yet to be supplied.

“The vehicle he is using to work does not belong to FAAN. The vehicle’s registration number could be verified through the appropriate authorities,” FAAN stated.
