The Ebonyi State International Airport has been named after President Mohammadu Buhari and is set to be commissioned in the coming days. This is according to the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Aviation which recently gave the project the green light to commence operations.
The project, which is located in Onueke, Ebonyi State, is the first of its kind in Nigeria. It is expected to be a major hub for domestic and international flights, serving passengers from all parts of Nigeria and beyond.
Maazi Tochukwu Ezeoke, who visited the project site, can report that the project is one of a kind in Nigeria. It is one of the few airports in the country that will have an International Terminal, which is expected to be operational in the coming weeks.
The airport, which is currently undergoing cleaning of construction debris, is expected to be fully operational in a matter of days. It is expected to be able to handle both domestic and international flights.
The Ebonyi State International Airport is part of the state’s effort to improve its infrastructure and attract more investors and will be a significant boost to the state’s economy, as it is expected to bring in more tourists and investors.
The project was initiated by the Ebonyi State Government in 2018 and secured approval from the federal government to inaugurate Flight Operations at the Airport, Onueke.
The project is expected to provide employment opportunities for the local population. It is also expected to have a positive impact on the state’s economy, as it is expected to attract more investors and tourists.
The airport is expected to provide direct access to and from the state capital, Abakaliki. This will be beneficial for both businesspeople and tourists, as it will provide them with easier access to the state and its attractions.
