Power outage destabilizes Lagos Airport.

 Power outage destabilizes Lagos Airport.
By, John Oputa
Activities were ground­ed last night at the do­mestic terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Interna­tional Airport, Lagos, follow­ing a power outage.
The outage, which began at about 7.10pm, threw hundreds of frightened passengers into frenzy as they struggled to lo­cate their luggage.
Nigeria’s former Perma­nent Representative to the United Nations, Professor Ibrahim Gambari (who is now Special Adviser to the UN Sec­retary-General), was among the passengers who struggled in the pitch darkness to re­trieve their luggage.
The outage was com­pounded by the arrival of three domestic airliners – Air Peace, Medview and Arik. Embarrassed by the outage, some FAAN officials volun­teered their flashlights to fight back the darkness. Several of­ficials of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) told News Mogul that last night’s outage was the first since the terminal was reno­vated four years ago during the tenure of former
Minis­ter of Aviation, Senator Stel­la Oduah.
As at press time, News Mogul could not get FAAN spokesman to com­ment on the situation.
