    FEPPPAN Appeals to FG to Cease Mandatory Deductions from FAAN Revenue


    The Federal Parastatals and Private Sector Pensioners Association of Nigeria (FEPPPAN) respectfully requests the Federal Government to reconsider the mandatory deductions from the revenue of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).

    Members of the Federal Parastatals and Private Sector Pensioners Association of Nigeria (FEPPPAN) recently convened in Enugu to address concerns regarding ongoing mandatory deductions from the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) revenue. The association, represented by its chairmen and secretaries, collectively appealed to the Federal Government to cease further deductions.

    The principal complaint centers around the obligatory deduction of fifty percent (50%) of FAAN’s revenue into the Federal Treasury Account, along with an additional five percent deduction remitted to the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB). FEPPPAN asserts that these deductions impede FAAN’s capacity to discharge its statutory obligations, encompassing public service responsibilities and the well-being of its staff and pensioners.

    In a joint statement signed by Chief Abah John, National Chairman, and Comrade Emeka Njoku, National Secretary/Administrator, the Federation of Ex-Petroleum Pensioners Association of Nigeria (FEPPPAN) expressed deep concern regarding the subpar medical treatment provided to pensioners. They strongly urged the management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) to honor and uphold the agreements reached concerning the healthcare of pensioners. While acknowledging FAAN’s consistent and timely payment of pensions, FEPPPAN emphasized that welfare issues, especially healthcare, remain critical and necessitate immediate attention and action.

    The Federation of Aviation Workers’ Unions of Nigeria (FAAWUN) firmly denounced any fraudulent practices within the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), pledging to expose such activities, including revenue collection discrepancies and fund mismanagement, to the appropriate authorities. During the meeting, FAAWUN’s national office received a mandate to develop its structure on union-owned land at the airport, aiming to prevent encroachment and safeguard their interests.

    Additionally, FEPPPAN applauded FAAN’s effective transition of its retirees to the association from the Nigerian Union of Pensioners (NUP), adhering to the Federal Trade Union Act. They urged FAAN’s management to prioritize development projects that mutually benefit the organization and its stakeholders.

    The FEPPPAN appeal emphasizes the critical need to address financial deductions that adversely impact FAAN’s operational capabilities and the well-being of its retirees. This situation necessitates collaborative efforts among government agencies and relevant stakeholders to find effective solutions and resolve these issues.
