With the visit of recent Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to the inspect the work on the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja runway, a boost of confidence and reassurance that the rehabilitation work at the airport will be completed as scheduled and normal flight to the second busiest airports west Africa will be restored.
Osinbajo who expressed optimism, said he was happy with the pace and quality of work done, adding that the progress is already at 80 per cent completion.
Kaduna airport since the 9th of March 2017 has catered for the flights previously scheduled for Abuja. Some of the foreign international airline had declined flying to Kaduna as they have no capacity in handling passengers in Kaduna. However the process has so far gone well and Nigerians are willing to put up with the disruption as along as it is for their flying safety and the closure time schedule is adhered to and this seems to be going on well.
Impressed with the work already done and the coordination that seems to be delivering the expected result the vice president has praised the combined effort of FAAN and the Ministry of Aviation and Ministry of Transportation and has observed that the contractors were working round-the-clock to meet the deadline and commended them for taking the job very seriously as he was given details of progress of work on the runway by the team led by the Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Saleh Dunoma in the company of the Captain Mukhtar Shaibu Usman , Director General of NCAA.
