Former FAAN Boss, Captain Yadudu, Ended Tenure, not Sacked by FG
Contrary to media reports that the immediate past Managing Director of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Captain Rabiu Yadudu, was sacked by the Federal Government, the former FAAN boss indeed finished his tenure successfully and bowed out of office.
A section of the media had earlier on Sunday reported that Captain Yadudu was fired by his bosses and a replacement named for him. Some commentators have also insinuated that the former FAAN boss was sacked over some alleged misdemeanours.
Findings by PRNIGERIA have however established that Captain Yadudu was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari on the 20th of May 2019 for a four-year term which elapsed on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
According to our findings, Captain Yadudu has since handed over appropriately and retired to a private life.

He retired alongside five directors who had either attained the mandatory age of 60 or had served for 35 years but who were also erroneously reported to have been sacked.
A credible source in FAAN also told our correspondent on the condition of anonymity that contrary to allegations of misconduct coming from some quarters, Captain Yadudu served the agency meritoriously with an unblemished record and an untarnished image.
“Captain Yadudu has had an unblemished tenure throughout his stint with the FAAN as its CEO. Hence, all we can say is Alhamdulillah,” the source said.
Meanwhile, Mr. Kabir Yusuf Mohammed has been appointed as the new Managing Director for the FAAN.
Mohammed before his appointment as the new FAAN boss was also the Regional General Manager, North Central.
He was appointed as the Chairman of Aviation Roadmap Implementation Committee in January 2022 by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, a position he combined with his office as the General Manager, Special Duties at FAAN.
The new helmsman is expected to resume office next week.
