The governor recently revealed this while inspecting the project, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the project conceived in 2007 had all necessary approvals, including the Environmental Impact Assessment, from Aviation regulatory body, the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), so completion is near.
He added that the project only needs brushing up to meet with current realities, so he is looking forward to the unveiling.
His words, “This project had been conceived since 2007 and all necessary approvals were gotten in 2008. All the Environment Impart Assessment , all other regulatory assessment have been met 100 percent.”
“All we have to do was to brush them up to ensure they meet current realities. This was not the decision that was taken for any other reason except that which is objective.”
“When the Senate Committee on Aviation came to visit us, we shared with them the business case for this airport. We reminded them that the two airports proposals were not initiated by this administration. I told them that the Committee we set up to look into the two airports concluded unequivocally that this location remained the best and most viable location for the airport.”
“The entire cargo value chain is on this corridor. We have Oil Palm, Cashew plantations and Green House in Sagamu and multinational companies around here. This is the centre where items for export are evaluated and approved for export. So with a Cargo Airport here, it is very convenient to move them.”
