FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AIMS TO ENHANCE AIRPORT FACILITIES IN COLLABORATION WITH STATES

Date:

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has expressed the Federal Government’s commitment to partnering with state governments in upgrading the nation’s airports. This initiative encompasses the maintenance of terminal buildings and exploring avenues for states to recover their investments.

Keyamo emphasized the importance of increased cooperation between the Ministry and state governments, given that many of these facilities are under state jurisdiction. He urged state authorities to work out the specifics of proposals for airport facility improvements, emphasizing that state governments are crucial partners in achieving shared objectives.

A delegation from the Nigerian Transportation Commissioners Forum, a branch of the Federal Ministry of Transportation, paid a courtesy visit to Minister Keyamo to discuss this collaborative effort. The Commissioner of the Ministry of Transportation in Cross River State, Pastor Ekpenyon Cobham, led the delegation and explained that the visit stemmed from a conference meeting among transportation commissioners. Their goal was to establish regular consultations and enhance collaboration with the Ministry of Aviation and Aerospace Development.

During the visit, Mrs. Chinwe Uwaegbute, the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Transportation Commissioners Forum, highlighted passenger concerns regarding flight delays and schedule changes by airlines in various states. The association expressed its wishes for a productive tenure for Minister Keyamo in leading the aviation ministry. This move towards closer collaboration between federal and state entities signals a positive step in enhancing the nation’s air travel infrastructure.
