Lawmakers Declare Enugu Airport Unsafe For Landing..

The Joint Committee of the National Assembly on Aviation on Thursday expressed worry over the deplorable facilities of some airports in the country and declared the Akanu Ibiam Airport unsafe.

In a report on the state of the Enugu Airport, Adamu said the situation was worrisome and needed urgent remedial measures to protect the airport users.

“What we saw in Enugu airport was a very serious infrastructure decay, we saw potholes on the runway and this is very unsafe for aircraft to land. We are surprised that international flights are operating at that airport where there is no running water and the toilets are in bad shapes,’’ he said.

Adamu disclosed that some international airlines like the Emirate Airlines had wanted to begin operations in Enugu but couldn’t because after inspection of the facilities, they found there was no water or operational light on the runway. According to him, it was impossible for aircraft to land at night in Enugu airport.

The senator also revealed that despite the payment of over 40 per cent of the contract sum for the new terminal that was being funded by a Chinese Bank (Exim bank), the terminal had remained in a state of decay. He said that so far, record had shown that over N9 billion had been spent on the said terminal.

The lawmaker assured that the committee would not hesitate to appropriately bring any organisation found guilty of funds diversion to book.

From P.M News


  1. Corruption everywhere. These people will be calling on God Almighty all the time

  2. So much money is pumped into this industry for renovations yet, nothing is ever done. Na wa oh

  3. Is that the only one they saw? Even the Enugu/Onitsha express way is a no go area. And yet every year they award contracts on the infrastructure, but nothing is ever done. The culprits should be brought to book.

  4. In Nigeria, there is no book to bring the culprits to.
    Is it not the same national "axembly" that awards these contracts to
    their cronies and tells them not to do anything that "nothing will happen?"
    How about "Halliburton?" Has anyone been brought to any book?
    Aren't the US accomplices in USA jails?
    Where are the Nigerian accomplices; the ones that received the bribes?
