The Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, has disclosed the contract for the provision of independent power supply (at N61 per kilowatt/hour) to the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, has been approved by the federal government.

He stated this on Wednesday while speaking with journalists shortly after the Federal Executive Council presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Sirika said the contract was awarded following the structural challenges encountered in the construction of a new terminal at the airport being handled by a Chinese firm.

According to him, “The new terminal building at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, which is called Chinese Building has challenge of power, water, sewage, apron etc, that we are putting up there.

“So, we have to find a way of dealing with those challenges – we are putting up an independent power system at the airport, which has been approved by FEC.

“Subsequently, we will also tend to the challenges of water, sewage, apron, connectivity between old and new airport and all the fire stations that is blocking the usage of the airport and perhaps, also the control tower that is connecting the other side of the airport.

“All these will be attended to in phases in preparation for the full utilisation of the airport.”
