Abuja International Airport to Get 2nd Runway - Minister

After shutting down the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja for repair, the Federal Govern­ment has taken steps to con­struct a second runway at the airport. The project will be com­pleted within two years.
The Minister of State for Avia­tion, Hadi Sirika, dropped the hint when he inspected the Ka­duna Airport in the company of Minister of Information, Alh Lai Mohammed.

The Kaduna Airport is serv­ing as alternative to the shut Abuja Airport, Sirika said that there are no last minute chang­es, which he declared would be possible once the process for the construction of the runway commences.
He said: “Yes, there will be a second runway in Abuja. Hope­fully, within the next 24 months we will have a new runway. There is a second runway in Kano, a military runway, a sec­ond runway in Lagos, a second runway in Port Harcourt. So, they have second runways and I think the focus of government now within the limited resourc­es is to do a second runway in Abuja.
The minister said that the government would squeeze funds from the 2017 budget to build a second runway in Abuja.
