Abuja Airport’s Runway To Undergo Another 18-week Upgrade - PUNCH by three: 8:05am On Mar 27, 2017
Olalekan Adetayo, Abuja

The Federal Government will still carry out another round of upgrade works on the runway of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja for 18 weeks after the facility would have been reopened for operations on April 19.

A top Presidency official who spoke on the condition of anonymity disclosed this to journalists in Abuja on Sunday.




The airport is currently shut to allow reconstruction work on its runway. The work which is in its third week is expected to last six weeks.

Quoting from a report of the Federal Government Coordinating Committee overseeing the management of the airport repair, closure and relocation, the Presidency official said unlike the ongoing work on the runway, the 18-week upgrade would not necessitate closure of the airport.

He said the upgrade would be done in the night, hence will not disrupt flight operations.

“After the Abuja Airport reopens for operations on April 19, upgrade works on the runway will continue for another 18 weeks.

“This second phase of upgrade works on the runway will be carried out at night, with no disruption to flight schedules,” he said.

He added that a media tour to allow journalists observe and assess the progress on the airport’s runway repair will hold this week as the repair enters its mid-point on Wednesday

It's been established that nobody was trying to sneak Buhari in the country under the cover of dark, if they need 20months let them have it.




The upgrade will. Definitely affect Abuja's igr but then it'll be better when NMA resumes

They want someone somewhere to eat out of the national cake but how they act like they have sense is what baffles me.

I roll with politicians and hey! they are all brain dead and all they care about is winning election, gathering money and oppressing.

Imagine the gathering of Ali babas in the red chambers legislating what exactly?

The greatest punishment one can ever experience is living in Nigeria, I'm not sure feeling in hell can be anything close to being here

I'm very sure that somewhere somehow someone is embezzling the money that is meant for this project. The money might not be that outrageous to avoid being detected but Naija will always be corrupt.

See result of 20 years of neglect.

For 20 years, we kept on pushing aside the renovaiton of this runway. 20 years of neglect.....and when we had a chance 5 years ago, the thing did not see the light of day.

Now the matter has become so serious....that we have to spend much longer repairing the runway.

Would we have spent this long a time if we had been serious about preventive maintenance in the first place?

Nigeria needs to get rid of fire brigade approach. Do it now...not when it is so bad we have to replace the whole stuff!
