The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has initiated an audit of the Murtala Muhammad International Airport (MMIA) and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA) in Abuja.

A team of auditors arrived in Abuja yesterday to kick off the audit, which is part of the 2024 ICAO Universal Security Audit Programme (USAP) through Continuous Monitoring Approach (CMA). The audit is scheduled to last for two weeks, concluding on March 22, 2024, and is supervised by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), the regulatory body overseeing aviation in the country.

The audit will assess various critical areas at the airports, including Inflight Security (IFS), Passenger and Baggage Security (PAX), Acts of Unlawful Interference (AUI), Facilitation (FAL), Legislation (LEG), Training (TRG), Quality Control Function (QCF), Operations (OPS), and Cargo, Mail, and Catering (CGO). These areas are integral to the impending certification of Lagos and Abuja airports, which has been pending for years. The audit aims to evaluate the airports’ compliance with international security standards and identify areas for improvement to enhance overall security and safety measures.
