Written by on May 17, 2023

DESPITE palliative measures from the Federal Government to sustain the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, indications have shown that the terminal can no longer work effectively.

The Managing Director, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria FAAN, Capt Rabiu Yadudu, who described the airport facilities as obsolete, insisted yesterday on the need for a new international airport in the state.

He said all measures put in place at the terminal could no longer work, insisting that the country needed a new terminal in Lagos.

Speaking at the ongoing FAAN’s National Aviation Conference, FNAC2 in Abuja, Yadudu said: “We need to construct a new Lagos international airport terminal. This entire palliative cannot work. All components are obsolete.

In another development, Yadudu disclosed that the passengers’ traffic report available to him showed that the Sam Mbakwe Airport in Owerri has the highest traffic figure in South East, while Lagos ranks highest in South West and Abuja, the lead in the North with potential to top Lagos in domestic passengers’ traffic soon.
