The Airports Council International (ACI) is the association of the world’s airports.

Engr. Dunoma is in the twilight of his tenure as MD of FAAN having spent 35 years in service.  Recently he hosted his friend and relatives to his 60th birthday dinner at a Chinese restaurant in Abuja.

However, sources said his alleged desperation to emerge as ACI’s president was informed by the desire to extend his tenure.

“If Engr. Dunoma becomes ACI president his tenure as FAAN MD will be automatically extended. This is why he wants to be the president at all cost. At the last count he has doled out about  $200,000 to key officials of ACI just to win the election.

“Kabiru Mohammed and Yakubu Dati are the kitchen cabinet members facilitating and coordinating with the official because Kabiru Mohammed told us the minister of state, Aviation, Hadi Sirika has promised to appoint him as director of Airport Operations and Yakubu Dati as SA Media following the restructuring that booted him out of the agency,” sources claimed.

Efforts to get Engr. Dunoma to confirm or deny the bribery allegation as at the time of publication were unsuccessful. His mobile phone could not be reached at that moment.
