Federal government insists on closure of Abuja Airport

Written by  Jan 24, 2017

The Federal Government has insisted that it is not going back on the closure of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja for six weeks for repairs to be carried out on the runway.

Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, who was speaking at the 2nd Presidential Business Forum at the State House in Abuja, said the bad state of the airport is already affecting smooth operations.
Amaechi was responding to a presentation by the President of Manufacturers Association of Nigeria MAN, Frank Udenba-Jacobs on the negative impact of the airport’s closure.
The minister said that the airport has outlived its 20 years live-span and is now 34 years, adding that the work to be done involves complete re-building of the airport.
According to him, the entire architecture of the runway from bottom to top has collapsed, making it totally unsafe to continue to use the runway.
