Repair of Abuja Airport Has Reached 57.5% - Minister (Photos)

Four weeks after take-off, the Minister of State Avia­tion, Senator Hadi Sirika, has disclosed that the repairs on the Nnamdi Azikiwe Inter­national Airport, Abuja, have reached 57.5%.
Sirika who was in the com­pany of the Minister of Infor­mation and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, after an inspection of the ongoing work at airport runway in Abuja on Thursday, said that work on the runway was going on simultaneously with the light installation.

He disclosed that a glass grid technology called Glasphalt was imported to help reinforce the runway and prevent future cracks, adding that it was the first time any Nigerian runway would be using such materials.
“Work is going on smoothly. The contractor has mobilised fully and almost 57.5% of the total work has been done, which shows that we are on course, on time and that we are doing what we need to do to ensure that the airport id opened on the 19th of April,” he said.
The minister said that the ter­minal building would also wear a new look as the rehabilitation of Wing D of the structure was being done, adding that the es­calator and lift for departure would be installed at the termi­nal.
“A lounge is being opened for the disabled, physically-chal­lenged and the elderly,” Sirika said, adding that in the Terminal B building, the lift was being re­habilitated alongside the toilets.
