Two new Directors for the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) have been appointed by the Federal Government on Tuesday.
The new appointees replaced some recently sacked Directors of the agency.
The two newly appointed Directors are Mrs Nike Aboderin, who is now the new Director of Finance and Accounts (DFA), and Mr Sadiku Abdulkadir Rafindadi, now the new Director of Commercial and Business Development (DCBD).
A statement issued by the Acting General Manager, Corporate Affairs of FAAN, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, explained that Mrs Aboderin is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (FCIB) and holds an M.Sc degree in Banking and Finance from the University of Lagos.
She has over 23years experience in the financial services industry and an Advanced Management Programme (AMP) graduate of Lagos Business School.
She also holds a post graduate certificate in Global Strategic Management (GSM) of the Harvard Business School, Boston, USA.
It was also disclosed that Mr Rafindadi is a 1985 graduate of Economics from the University of Pittsburgh.
He holds an MBA in Finance of Clark Atlanta University, USA and attended Kaduna Polytechnic, where he obtained Certificates in Management Studies.
Mr Rafindadi is also a seasoned Manager and until his current appointment, has worked in several Management capacities in different institutions, including, Phoenix Investment Services and British Petroleum.
Not too long ago, the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, ordered a comprehensive audit of FAAN, which led to the forceful retirement of some Directors and the demotion of some General Managers.
