The minister noted that laying of fibreglass and binder course for the regulated runway were currently being done, adding that the presidential interventions in the project also included new cargo section, new arrival and departure terminal and medical centre-clinic and peri-meter fencing.

The airport received N10 billion intervention by President Muhammadu Buhari after an abrupt closure last year owing to the bad condition of the runway and facilities.
