on

The Minister of State for Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika has said that the repair work going on at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, is now 96% completed.

Sirika gave this assessment when he visited the site on Tuesday, one week ahead of the proposed reopening of the airport.

He explained that the work which commenced from runway 04 had progressed to runway 22, adding that the laying of asphalt had been completed.

“You can see that where we are is runway 22 and remember the work started from runway 04 and has ended at runway 22.

“You can see that we have finished ashpalting and we are at 96 per cent completion level of the runway.

“What remains is a part of the airfield lighting and the markings which are being done simultaneously.

“We’ve got about a week to the due date for opening so we are on schedule,” Sirika assured.

The Minister debunked rumours that the airport would be run for only 12 hours after reopening, assuring that it would not be shut after reopening on April 19.

The airport was closed for six weeks from March 8 for rehabilitation of its failed runway and flights were diverted to Kaduna Airport.

Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Explodes Over #LekkiMassacre Of #EndSARS Protesters

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has condemned the attack on peaceful #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.

It was reported earlier that soldiers of the Nigerian Army invaded a peaceful protest at Lekki toll gate on Tuesday evening.

Reacting to the attack on the peaceful protesters in Lagos in a tweet, Kanu, a director of Radio Biafra, said it is “shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim” President Muhammadu Buhari “using the Army to kill unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos” on a “Southern soil”.

The apparently furious IPOB leader wondered if “Southern Christian President” would ever “contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in Kano”, northern Nigeria.

Kanu tweeted: It’s shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim @NGRPresident using the Army to KILL unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos, a Southern soil? Would a Southern Christian President ever contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in KANO?”
