In front of tomorrow’s resuming of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, first airplane has arrived on the new runway.
It reports that the air terminal was closed down a year ago for a significant fix.
The undertaking prompted the extension of the runway from one to three kilometers.
At around 5 p.m. today, an airplane passing on the Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, arrived at the air terminal.
An elated Sirika told journalists that all was now set for the reopening of the airport.
“Yes, the first aircraft landed today, and the minister was on board,” he said while responding to question from journalists.
Also on board the flight was billionaire business mogul, Prince Arthur Eze, who told the media that “we thank President Buhari, this shows that he loves Ndigbo.”
