Niger gov expresses dissatisfaction over handling of Minna Airport runway
Niger State Governor, Mohammed Umaru Bago, has said that the state will not accept the poor work being done at the runway of Minna International Airport.
The governor, who was at the facility to assess the reconstruction of the runway, was visibly angry.
He told the contractor that the work was poor, shabbily executed, and unacceptable to the state. He observed that the contractor did not meet the required standard of the contract despite the funds he had received.
During one of the governor's inspection visits, the contractor was assured to deliver standard work in mid-August 2023.
He then charged the contractor to immediately return to the site and fix the runway to the agreed standard as the state prepares to receive guests for the upcoming Green Economy Summit slated for the 24th and 25th of October, 2023.
The Governor was accompanied by his deputy, Comrade Yakubu Garba, the managing director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Kabir Yusuf Muhammad, the chairman of the House Committee on Aviation, Abdullahi Idris Garba, and some members of the State Executive Council.
