The Minister made this known while speaking at Nigeria’s National Action Committee on the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) last week where part of his mission was to advocate support for the industry.
He said,”…We also advocate for special support for aviation industry specifically, to fast track systems upgrade in Lagos, Abuja, Kano, Port Harcourt and Enugu in a view to matching international best standards.
“In our own modest way in Nigeria, we have developed these five airports. We have completed Abuja, Port Harcourt and put to use, Kano is completed and will be put to use in March, Lagos will be put to use in the same March and Enugu in due course.
