The Federal Government has budgeted the sum of N1billion for the construction of new terminal building at Enugu Airport.
The government also budgeted that it would expend at least another N390million for the completion of new headquarters for the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) in Abuja.
These were contained in the 2019 budgeted submitted by the Federal Government to the National Assembly last December.
According to the document, the sum would be expended on the construction of new terminal building alone.
It would be recalled that Enugu Airport was in the news for most part of 2018, following the inability of FAAN to install the Instrument Landing System (ILS) procured for the airport.
The Federal Government has announced it will demolish more structures to give way for full internationalisation of Akanu Ibiam Airport in Enugu.
The government had said that for the new ILS to be installed, it would need to demolish more structures to give way for full internationalisation of Akanu Ibiam Airport in Enugu.
Note: Akanu Ibiam International Airport, also known as Enugu Airport, is an airport serving Enugu the capital city of Enugu State of Nigeria, and nearby cities, such as Onitsha, Nnewi, Awka, Abakaliki, Nsukka, Okigwe, Afikpo, Ugep, Orlu, Idah, Otukpo and Ogoja.
