Ex-BBC Correspondent Resigns From MMA2


A former British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) correspondent, Mrs. Kadaria Ahmed-Adesida, has resigned as Head of Strategy and Corporate Communications of Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited, operators of the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal 2, (MMA2).

A former British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) correspondent, Mrs. Kadaria Ahmed-Adesida, has resigned as Head of Strategy and Corporate Communications of Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited, operators of the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal 2, (MMA2).

P.M.News gathered that Kadaria, as she is known at the Lagos airport, resigned a couple of days ago following a scandal over missing money meant for publicity of the airport.

P.M.News learnt that the Chairman of Bi-Courtney, Dr. Wale Babalakin, allegedly said that the ex-BBC correspondent could not handle media relations at the MMA2.

‘The chairman said that she could not manage media relations. That is why the department was put under Customer Care,” a source said. When contacted, Kadaria laughed off the allegations, saying that she voluntarily resigned from MMA2 for a better offer.

She said in a text message: “Simon, I hope your sources, who obviously manufacture news, don’t get you in trouble one day. Anyway, I resigned to pursue my first love; journalism, as Managing Editor at Timbuktu media.”

PM.News gathered that the corporate communication department of MMA2 has been experiencing in-fighting since the appointment of Kadaria as the head of department.

However, MMA2 has not disclosed who will replace Kadaria. Another communication officer at the airport, Mr. Biodun Bakare, resigned some months ago after a disagreement with Kadaria.
