Ibom Air: Akwa Ibom Airline To Launch – Governor Emmanuel by Blue3k(m): 9:00pm On Dec 22, 2018
The Akwa Ibom governor, Udom Emmanuel, has said his administration is planning to launch a state-owned airline, Ibom Air, to “lessen the problems currently being encountered by numerous air travellers” to the state.

Mr Emmanuel said this on Friday in Uyo, during the annual state-sponsored Christmas Carol night.

The governor said the planned airline, which would be wholly owned by the state, would ensure the state remains a destination of choice for foreign investors.

“Our state-owned and run Obong Victor Attah International Airport has a category 2 runway and work is ongoing on the second taxi way,” the governor said.

The governor also said work was going on “steadily” on the Ibom Deep Seaport, in addition to numerous road projects across the state.


“Our dream to open up our state through land, air, and sea will come full cycle,” he said.

Mr Emmanuel also used the opportunity to blast his critics.

“When we promised all these, our naysayers said it couldn’t be done, and some are still deluding themselves that it hasn’t been done, even when they are driving on the road we have built, are enjoying the steady electricity we have provided, are being treated in the world class hospitals we have remodelled and equipped with modern amenities, and whose children are receiving quality education in our public schools,” the governor said.

“We will, however, not relent, we will not give in to propaganda or blackmail,” he added.

Godswill Akpabio, a senator and former governor of the state, was absent, for the first time, at the Christmas Carol which was conceived during his administration.

Mr Akpabio, who helped Mr Emmanuel become governor – against all odds – in 2015, has vowed to stop his re-election in 2019.

I'm still waiting for International terminal, cargo operations and MRO at the airport. None of these projects have been completed and he's talking about Airline. If he finished these airport upgrades he would attract more private airlines to Akwa Ibom.

Dear Mr. Governor, why not ensure that the sea port which will be of immense benefit to the citizens is speedily completed?

It's good to dream big but set priorities right.

Gov. Udom wan launch Akwa Ibom to perpetual indebtedness.

For the sake of akwa ibom people I just hope it's a statement made for the purpose of the 2019 general election which is intended to hype and nothing more

N50b monthly earnings is just on paper, Lagos owes more than N800b and the debts are rising. By 2023 when a good number of the non indigenes doing business in Lagos are forced to relocate ,then it would be open to every one that Lagos has been wrecked by APC and Tinubu

Hope Buhari will learn from Gov Emmanuel Udom on how to float an airline successfully not following the footsteps of the drug baron from the Waste who is only good in looting.

Government run airline. First question to ask yourself, what has any government in Nigeria run so well before? Please point to just one government corporation that is well managed successfully. Even in advanced economies, it was a failure.

They are honestly mad in this country.

I can see why we can never ever grow. Another billion would be sunk into this and stolen.


Give it 3 years and the airline is bankrupted and looted to the ground..

By the way, we can now see the effects of the useless education being passed to people in our higher institutions. How would owning an airline improve the rate at which foreign investors flock into a state? Like seriously? A governor actually spout that out and he wasnt called out on such BS?

How far has the governor gone with the proposed world class cattle range? How about the Mexican cattles that were already paid for since two years ago? How about the car assembly plant? How about the tooth pick,meterng,peacock paint company? Are they functional? Oga governor please fear God. Akpabio was not like you. I know the shoes Akpabio left behind are so big for you.
