Abuja Airport Will Be Reopened Today

Saleh Dunoma, managing director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), says the runway of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, would be ready by April 17, two days ahead of the deadline.




 He gave the assurance in a statement signed by Ariyo Akinfenwa, media consultant to the minister of state for aviation.
“We will be ready April 17 but we are leaving the remaining two days for Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA),” the statement read.

“We have written to them and they will come by today (Sunday) to do the preliminary inspection. “They have to certify the airport that what we have done is in accordance with their standards.

“If there is any observation as a result of the inspection, we will now make sure we carry out corrections.”

He maintained that with the work done, the April 19 deadline for the reopening of the airport is no longer in doubt. According to him, the authority also used the opportunity provided by the closure of the airport to address other Airport Excellence in Safety (APEX) related items.

“Dunoma also noted that the terminal building was also ready for flight operations.
The Abuja airport was shut on March 8 for six weeks to enable Julius Berger rebuild the 3.6 kilometre runway.

The runway, which was constructed in 1982, was meant to last for 20 years, but had been in use for 35 years without major repairs and maintenance.

    1. You don't see it as tangible because you are a fool. Until people starting dying before you throw blame. Idiot.

  7. The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, as some count slowness; but he is patient with us, not wishing that anyone should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
