FAAN states that, no such thing happened as Dame Jonathan, like other family members of former Presidents and other designated principal officers of Government are officially entitled to the usage of airport VIP and Protocol lounges under the management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria.

Dati said, the Authority holds the former First Lady in high esteem, being the wife of our former President and therefore, could not have done anything that would suggest disrespect for her person.

“We wish to recall that former President Goodluck Jonathan GCFR in his recent trips from the same airport, has had to walk to the aircraft from the protocol lounge, in recognition of this ICAO regulation.” the statement concluded.
