Expatiating further on the state’s preparedness to partner with the Nigerian Airforce, he said the terminal building under construction in the state-owned airport upon completion will be unprecedented and that the state would soon complete an in-country Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) facility that would offer such services without the need for foreign exchange.

“Our road network is one of the best in the whole country. Talk about air, our airport has an upgraded category two runway that can still take commercial flights even in bad weather. By the time we finish our terminal building, it will have no rival in Africa.
