The Federal Ministry of Aviation, in line with the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (establishment, etc.) Act, 2005, and global best practice, hereby informs all stakeholders, local and international, development partners, and members of the media, that the Request for Proposals(RFP) phase of the Nigeria Airport Concessions programme (NACP), came to a close on the 19th of September 2022. This deadline, announced on the 8th of August, after close deliberations with ICRC and the transaction advisers, allowed for two (2) weeks extension in response to numerous requests from participating bidders.

The Federal Ministry of Aviation, the Transaction Advisers and the Project Steering Committee, has duly notified the ICRC of this milestone, and has now stopped receiving submissions in response to the published RFP. The Honourable Minister, Senator Hadi Sirika, would like to use this opportunity to thank all those who diligently participated in the processes for their interest and timely submissions.

The Federal Ministry of Aviation reminds all stakeholders that this is a multistage programme, and that RFP stage is followed by a robust evaluation phase driven by an inter-agency committee – i.e. the bid evaluation committee, in line with relevant statutes and international best practice. A public announcement of the winning bids and reserve bidders for each asset will be made upon successful evaluation of all bids and approval of the Bid Evaluation Committee’s evaluation report by the Project Steering Committee (PSC).

Successful bidders will then be invited to enter into negotiations with the Federal Government, after which a full business case (FBC) for each transaction will be submitted to ICRC for approval before onward transmission to the Federal Executive Council for final approval. The Federal Ministry of Aviation encourages all participants who have responded to the RFP to ensure that they continue to refer to the NACP website –, where all updates and relevant documentation, including updated FAQ can be found.

Thank you.
