No Need For An Airport In Ekiti – Tinubu by akinbode1(m): 12:03am On Oct 29, 2019
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bolaji Asiwaju Tinubu has said that there is no need for an airport in Ado-Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State.

Tinubu stated this at the seventh convocation ceremony of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUA).

Tinubu, the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, the Obi of Onitsha, His Royal Majesty, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe and Professor Anthony Olusegun Adegbulugbe, were conferred with honorary degrees at the event.

Tinubu told the event host, Chief Afe Babalola, Ekiti State governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi and other dignitaries that the State does not need an airport.

There have been ongoing plan to build an airport in Ado-Ekiti a plan that the state has been working on for years leading to the inauguration of an eight-man committee to oversee its construction.

The past administration failed to bring the project to fruition and Governor Fayemi has sought to continue the push.

Chief Afe Babalola is said to be the one pushing for the project as he allegedly feels a need for the airport because of his university.

But speaking at the convocation ceremony, Tinubu told the audience that there is clearly no need for an airport in Ado-Ekiti.

The former Lagos Governor added that building one in the city would amount to a waste of the state’s scarce resources.

Tinubu pointed out that the functional airport in Akure, the capital of Ondo State will fulfill the air transport needs of residents of Ekiti state, as well as visitors to the state.

According to Tinubu, what the Ekiti State should do is to push for the fixing of the Akure-Ado-Ekiti Road because an airport in Akure will effectively serve both states.

And he has spoken well as usual. Akure to Ado Ekiti is less than 1hr which is exactly (41klm) If the road is in good shape , it can take you less than 50mints to drive.

You see truth but still believe in lies. Of what importance is having another airport in Ado Ekiti when you can easily get to Ado from Akure airport under 50mints?

Ekiti needs:-
1, International Airport.
2, Rly Links to Abuja, Lagos and other Capital Cities.
3, Modern Roads to Abuja and other Capital Cities.
4, Big Modern State Library to supplement all the University Libraries in Ekiti States.
5, Ekiti State must be modern to compete and compare favourably with other States in Nigeria and The US.
6, Ekiti should pray Dangote to build a University and a Cement Factory in Ijero and Ogotun Ekiti respectfully for them.


All of the above should be replicated by Ondo State Government. And you will enjoy them when the States become fully autonomous of Police, Resources and Elections Control.
Fayemi and Akeredolu are well educated and skillful. I wish them God's and Good's Speed and Progress.
