Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), the operator of the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal Two (MMA2), has felicitated the Nigerian Muslims during this year’s Ramadan Fasting.
According to the Islamic Calendar, Ramadan Fasting is a spiritual exercise that requires abstinence from eating, drinking, and other indulgences from dawn to dusk. The Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, the highest religious regulatory body that administers the affairs of Muslims in Nigeria, has already admonished the faithful to start looking out for the Moon from Wednesday, March 22nd, preparatory to the commencement of 29/30 days of concerted spiritual supplications and acts of kindness.
In a statement on Thursday, the Head of Corporate Communications, Mr. Oluwatosin Onalaja said BASL has made adequate provision for the safety, security, and comfort of travelers and others within and around the terminal during the fasting period.
To further reassure customers, he added, “We have inaugurated and equipped an FRSC Special Marshal Team for proper Traffic Control within and around the terminal. Our Aviation Security (AvSec) team is also well equipped to detect any security threats and nip them in the bud.” Theft and extortion have drastically reduced at the terminal, thanks to our technology-driven surveillance, and overt and covert security systems. It would also be recalled that in the last 16 years of operation, the terminal has recorded zero terrorist attacks and no major internal or external security attacks.”
