The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), has banned the use of ‘Ghana Must Go’ sacks by passengers at all airports in the country.
According to a circular by FAAN, titled, ‘Re: Prohibition of Usage Of Ghana Must Go’, signed by Manager, Airport Services, Henok Gizachew, the ban is particularly for passengers travelling through the country’s international airports.
Gizachew stated that the sack was banned by the authority as it has cost the airlines huge loss and also damaged the airports conveyor belt system.
He noted that passengers who wish to use ‘Ghana Must Go’ to travel must have the same well package in carton or hardcover of rectangular size.
But in a tweet on Friday, FAAN however said the ban was issued by Ethiopian Airlines to intending passengers.
The use of the ‘Ghana Must Go’ bags have been attributed to the breakdown of many of the country’s airports’ conveyor belt systems and one that has put enormous costs on the shoulders of the airport authority.
The popular Ghana Must Go sack which comes in different sizes is very popular among many Nigerian travellers due to its light weight and capacity to carry more loads.
