When Acting President Yemi Osinbajo signed three Executive Orders aimed at facilitating the ease of doing business, many did not envisage that the results would start manifesting so soon.
Although, the Orders essentially sought to save time and cost, promote transparency and efficiency in the business environment, some critics of the administration, including the oppistion, were not convinced that a new order wasi n the offing.
However, develoments at the nation’s airports where the implementation of the Orders has begun, may have proved such them wrong. The directive, The Nation learnt, has ushered a new regime of efficient service delivery at the airports. The orders have reduced the turnaround time for passengers, airlines and redesigned airport security architecture by restricting some security agencies to some parts of the terminal.
For instance, in compliance with the orders, the authorities at the nation’s airports have since introduced new check-in procedures. The move, which was in accordance with global standard in check-in procedures for passengers, was sequel to the introduction of a central screening and check-in point for passengers, irrespective of the airlines they are travelling with.
