• We have not been informed, says private operator
The festering face-off between aviation service providers and management of Osubi Airport, in Warri, Delta State, has assumed a new dimension with the Federal Government’s approval of a takeover of the private purpose-built airstrip.
 
The government, in a letter to all the aviation parastatals, terminated the contract of Shoreline Oil Services Limited, the operator of the airport, with immediate effect, citing incompetence.
 
Shoreline, however, told The Guardian yesterday that they had not been formally informed, and are still running the facility as at Sunday.
 

NAMA recently gave a 30-day final demand notice to debtor airlines and private/state-owned airports to settle all outstanding debts owed to the agency.
 
The demand notice, which expires on February 28, expects all debtors to settle their indebtedness or risk sanctions. Recall that the affected debtors had earlier been communicated with details of their respective indebtedness to NAMA, but have made no tangible effort to pay.
