Enterprise Television- Abuja Airport to Get Independent Power System

Minister of State for Aviation,Hadi Sirika,  says the Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved an independent power system for the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport in Abuja, to end frequent cases of outages in the airport.

Briefing journalists at the end of yesterday’s FEC meeting, Sirika said the airport had witnessed a series of challenges in recent times particularly on the first working day of the year.

He listed such challenges to include: power outages, water, sewage and apron tiling challenges.

The power supply crisis, he said, prompted the approval of independent power system by FEC yesterday to avert recurrent cases of power outages.

He added that further challenges plaguing the airport would subsequently be tackled.

“Subsequently, we will also attend to the water supply challenges, sewage challenges, connectivity between the halls at the terminal, the apron tiles and the fire station that is broken using the apron and perhaps also, the control tower that cannot see the other side sections of the airport. All of these will be attended to in phases preparatory to full rehabilitation of the airport,” he said.
