Minister : Enugu airport will be ready before Easter
Minister of aviation, Hadi Sirika, on Thursday assured that the rehabilitation of Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu state will be completed before Easter.
The Minister who made this known while carrying out inspection at the Airport expressed satisfaction with work done so far by the contractor.
He said, “I am very satisfied with the level of work. According to programme of work approved by us, we are beating the deadline. Easter is indeed feasible, we are delivering this work before Easter and that is sacrosanct by the grace of God.
“The contractor is capable enough to deliver this procurement; it is one of the few companies in Nigeria with runway experience. We take this job seriously because we know that Enugu is the centre of South Eastern part of the country. By the time we are done with Enugu, you will be very proud of this airport.”
