President Muhammadu Buhari has on Thursday inaugurated the new Terminal of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, as promised before the end of Dec. 2018.
Speaking at the event, Buhari assured that the Federal Government would remain committed to developing Nigeria to regional air transportation hub, thereby assuming its leadership in the aviation sub-sector in Africa.
He recalled that the promise to inaugurate the project was made on October 25 when he inaugurated the Port Harcourt International Airport Terminal in Rivers.
“You will recall that on the 25th October 2018, I commissioned Port Harcourt International Airport Terminal.
“During the event, the Honourable Minister of State (Aviation) stated that the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Terminal, Abuja, would be completed and ready for commissioning before the end of the year.
“Today, that promise has been kept. I wish to commend the Honourable Minister and his team for a job well done.
