Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), Abuja will be closed for six weeks between February and March next year says Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika.
This was disclosed to newsmen in Abuja yesterday. The minister said the closure is to enable a construction company, Julius Berger Plc, carry out re-construction work on the badly damaged airport runway.
This is what the minister said in a statement
“Talk is ongoing with oil marketers, the Ministry of Petroleum and Central Bank of Nigeria to resolve the crisis. Very soon, the country will be out of this, as we cannot be relying on Ghana for aviation fuel.”
