Every state has its own unique circumstances. But be grateful for what you have. It could be worse.

There are states currently with no air access. Benue is not one of them.
Not saying it can't be better.
But you can fly in and out of benue is my point.

We just like bogus names/ titles in Nigeria.
What's the meaning of "cargo airport".
Cargo handling is just an aspect of commercial aviation. Specially designated airports for cargo are very rare.
Even FedEx, Ups amazon (prime air) which are the giants of cargo operations in the world operate out of conventional airports.

A cargo operation only requires a specialized warehouse for storage and handling. Like the one being built in Uyo,Nigeria.
Sometimes separate apron but not always.

Does it mean that tha cargo designated airports in Nigeria does not handle passengers services

Uyo airport is the fastest growing aviation destination in Africa today,
Opened its doors for commercial aviation in 2009, in just 13yrs, has added its own airline anchored there, first of its kind in Africa. Ibom air state owned with 7 aircraft in its fleet and counting, awaiting 10 A220 from airbus.

Has completed its MRO, its second runway/ taxiway and at the verge of opening for the public. Etc.

You keep wishing evil, God keeps prospering!

Are you for real?

Enugu, Imo, Anambra
Besides, East is not that big.
If you land in Asaba, Anambra is a stone throw from the airport.
PH to Owerri is about 2hrs drive

We need interstate rail system in this country. It's far batter than flying

Don't mind that enemy of progress bro.

Akwa Ibom State Nyin is rising and moving forward.

This is how an int'l airport looks like and not one ugly looking color riot over-lit structure with 17 water fountains inside the empty container-like building.

The Airport project in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state capital, is West Africa's biggest Aviation initiative that will greatly impact the Aviation sector in Africa.
The project is massive, includes:
1). The smart terminal 3 storey building with 5 avio- bridges , capacity of 1million PAX / year.
2). CAT. 9 Apron.
3). Surface Carpark
4). Integrated Access way.
5). Second Runway/ Taxiway 3.5km×60m
6). Integrated Cargo handling terminal
7). MRO ( Maintenance hanger) the biggest in West and Central Africa.
What happened to the Airport Akpabio constructed?

Is that not the question all over Nigeria?
At least in Akwa ibom we can point to several industries that has opened its doors in the past 8yrs, unlike in other parts of the nation where they are shutting down.
1).Four points by sheraton ikot ekpene. Operated by marriot group.
2). Ibom Air.
3). Ibom Air MRO.
4). Jubilee syringe manufacturing.
5). Electric metering manufacturers.
6).Isreali owned, Mimshack mekavim car assembly plant. Itu
7).ibom specialist hospital
cool. Several general hospitals in the state renovated to 21st century standards.
9). Kings flour mills
10). Greenwell fertilizer
Etc
At least we can point to several ventures in akwa ibom that has started operations not to mention the ocp fertilizer that's under construction by morrocan govt and Aksg, the 200 barrel per day BUA refinery at ibeno under construction.
The 50,000bpd sterling oil refinery under construction in eastern obolo etc.
And the ibom deep seaport.
Great things are happening in Akwa ibom. But the job creation could be better.
Akwa ibom has a population of 7million people. It's difficult to create jobs for all. But the state is trying better than others in the country.

Every state in Nigeria has youths travelling to Lagos and Abuja for employment, so don't single Aks out.

Industrlization is a process not a destination.
The process has started in Akwa ibom.
Once our ports are ready for easy evacuation it will speed up the process.
Air Port, about to be updated to international with cargo handling facilities,
Seaport about to commences construction.
Several ventures already started, foreign investors coming in gradually.
Go read up on BUA refinery, OCP fertilizers, sterling oil refinery. Dangote gas pipeline that will Channel gas from ibeno in Aks passing through all Nigerdelta states to Europe via morroco.

By the way do you know any state in Nigeria, that has more accessible and standard road networks within its territory than Akwa ibom.
All the structures that encourages industrial revolution is Bing gradually put in place in Akwa ibom.
