Governor Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa State has affirmed to the public that the ongoing contribution of the multi billions naira Lafia Airport will be ready in two years.
He said the ongoing Lafia Airport, when completed will be the most viable alternative to the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja.
“With the commitment of the contractors, there is every assurance that in the next two years the airport will be ready for use”.
The governor affirmed that with the 65 kilometer road to be constructed from the Airport to Keffi, passengers from Abuja will be able to access the Airport within one hour ten minutes.
He explained that depending on the location of passengers in Abuja, the Lafia Airport will be closer to those around Karu, Asokoro and other locations in Abuja comparing the distance from those places to the Abuja Airport and that of Lafia.
He further maintained that the airport will also open up more business channels and activities that will boost both the economy of the state, FCT and equally create employment opportunities for the people.
He added that the people of the state and business partners interested in the project should be rest assured that the Airport will be a reality.
