Abuja airport second runway to be ready in 12 months – Keyamo

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, said on Tuesday the second runway of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, would be completed in 12 months.

The minister, who disclosed this during the inspection of facilities at the airport, said the government had resolved the lingering issues on community compensation which has delayed the commencement of the project.

He said: “On the second runway, I have to go and meet the FCT Minister to clear the obstacle on the way. As of today, the report I have is that the communities have started receiving the money we disbursed.
