The Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah, on Tuesday said that the inauguration of re-modelled airports in the country would begin in January 2014.
Oduah spoke while inspecting ongoing work at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos.
She said that after the remodelling of the airports, Nigerians should expect an aviation industry that would create wealth and jobs for the populace.
The minister said by the second quarter of 2014, the MMIA would have new bridges/fingers and passengers would have better experiences at the airport.
According to her, the Federal Government will continue to ensure the safety and security of passengers at the nation’s airports.
She also said that the government was prepared to give Nigerians a national carrier that would give the best experience to air travellers.
“We are experiencing some challenges at the moment, but once the issues are resolved, the plan will continue.
“We are going to rectify those challenges very soon. The important thing is to give Nigerians the national carrier that we will all admire”.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the minister inspected the newly installed screening machines at the ‘D’ and ‘E’ wings of the MMIA.
She also inspected some office projects within the re-modelled terminal. (NAN)
