Former minister of aviation, Hadi Sirika says the Enugu airport has “a lot of problems” and should be shut down for major repairs.
The former aviation minister said this on Friday during his ministerial screening at the Senate.
Sirika who was given the traditional “take a bow” treatment by senators, being a former senator, was asked by the Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe, before taking a bow to consider the renovation of the Enugu International Airport.
“We are glad he is here with us and going back as our donation to the executive arm. On this note of speaking for the Senate, in order to ask Hadi to take the privilege of being a member of the hollow chamber, I will like to ask about Enugu airport.
“They took away the generator, as you take a bow, remember the generator and the runway into the same manner you expeditiously dealt with Abuja airport,” he said.
Then Sirika took a bow and left the chamber.
