Titled ‘Suspension Of Airport Taxi Services At Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja,’ FAAN expressed displeasure over the disputes between different factions of the taxi operators.

It said FAAN “Wishes to inform the general public that the airport car hire service at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja has been suspended with immediate effect.
