FAAN faults Amaechi on PH airport upgrade

By on September 26, 2013

THE Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has refuted claims by Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State that the remodeling of the Port Harcourt International Airport, has been suspended by the Federal Government over the political face off between President Goodluck Jonathan and the governor.

The governor was quoted aa making the allegation last Saturday, while being a host on a television programme.

Speaking after ascertaining the progress of work on the airport upgrade project, FAAN’s General Manager, Public Communications, Mr Yakubu Datti, said that the level of the project covered does not suggest such allegations.

He said: “Work at the International Airport has been 90 percent completed. You can see the lights powered and water running. This is facility that is very dear to government because it is the window to the oil industry and it is strategic because it is in the heart of the South South.”
