The Minister of State for Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, on Monday inaugurated the newly completed international terminal for Maiduguri International Airport, which had commenced since 2013.
Sirika, while inaugurating the project in Maiduguri, said the completion of the project was a fulfilment of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to complete all ongoing projects across Nigerian airports.
He said that the project was one of the 157 projects commenced by the government in 2015, adding that 134 projects had so far been completed.
“Maiduguri airport terminal rehabilitation commenced in 2013 and was abandoned but in the spirit of President Buhari’s leadership style, he urged the completion of all abandoned airport projects and this is one of them.
“It underscores the importance of Borno as a state in the North-East, and having been ravaged by insecurity.
“We give importance to this airport and many other facilities that will ensure safe and secure airport operations.
