Repair work started yesterday at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.
A Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) official confirmed to The Nation that markings had been done on the runway to indicate that “it was closed”.
“They are also doing a survey of the runway.The makings will indicate to air flyers that the runway is closed and they cannot land here.So, that is the beginning of the work,” the official added.
Another official and FAAN’s International Terminal Manager Mrs. Hajara Musa said work started on Wednesday after the management handed over the runway to the contractors.
However, passengers heading to Benin, Ibadan and other destination on various flights were screened at the Abuja airport before they were conveyed to Kaduna.
