The Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu is about to wear a new look as the federal government has approved the sum of ten billion naira intervention fund for the upgrade of the airport.
President Muhammadu Buhari disclosed this in a tweet on his official handle @MBuhari.
He said “I have approved the sum of N10billion for an Intervention fund for the upgrade of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu. I have the assurance of the Minister of Aviation that the work will be done speedily and to the highest standards.
“Even as we have many items competing for our limited resources, we will continue to prioritize infrastructure investments in every part of the country. It is our responsibility to ensure Nigeria’s infrastructure is fixed; we will keep doing this,” President Buhari tweeted.
The intervention fund approval follows an earlier meeting between the South-East leaders and President Buhari at the State House Council Chambers in Abuja.
During the meeting the leaders called for special Federal Government intervention for the speedy completion of the Enugu International airport and rehabilitation of federal roads in the region.
