President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated the newly built ‘ultra-modern’ Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport terminal in Abuja on Thursday, December 20, 2018. The terminal is set to take 15 million passengers annually with a view to developing Nigeria into a regional air transportation hub.
According to Buhari, the event reflects the Government’s deliberate policy to sustain the development of Nigeria’s infrastructure. “We are gradually closing the infrastructural deficit bedeviling our country” Buhari said
The new terminal has 72 check-in counters, five baggage collection carousels, 28 immigration desks at arrival and 16 at departure, eight security screening points and eight passenger boarding bridges.
