Aviation Minister Senator Hadi Sirika has assured the National Assembly’s joint committees on aviation of the completion of the second Abuja International Airport Runway before the exit of the current regime.

Sirika spoke during an oversight visit to the airport by the joint committees of the Senate and House of Representatives led by Senator Abiodun Olujimi and Honourable Nnolim Nnaji.

He promised the N92bn worth of runway would be ready before the end of 2023.

The Minister, who conducted members of the committees of the two chambers of the National Assembly around the ongoing projects at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, disclosed that the contractor for the second runway, Chinese Civil Engineering Construction Company, had been fully mobilized.

CCECC project manager, Yang Yantao, while responding to Nnaji’s demand for assurance that the runway would be on schedule, stressed that with proper funding, the CCECC would deliver the runway and all the components in six months.
