The Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport (MAKIA) is ready for commissioning.
This was contained in a statement made available to LEADERSHIP yesterday by the general manager, Corporate Communications, Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mr Yakabu Dati.
The statement urged them to adopt a new attitude that would complement the current transformational changes taking place in the aviation sector, and challenged them to take ownership of the remodeled airport terminals in order to maximise its full benefits and realise the corporate objectives of the Authority.
“We cannot carry over nonchalant attitudes into the new world class airport terminals being constructed,” it said, and called on the people to take advantage of the new facility for wealth creation.
The statement further noted the managing director, who was conducted round the remodelled airport by the regional general manager, Ibrahim Danyabu, said that the airport would boost economic activities and create employment to thousands of people.
He was at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport as part of his inspection of airports undergoing remodelling.
MAKIA is one of the eleven airports being remodelled under the first phase comprising 11 airports, out of which two were commissioned, namely the GAT, Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, and GAT Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja.
