Nigeria’s Minister of State Aviation, Hadi Sirika is seeking US $461m  to be approved by the National Assembly for additional work on the new airport terminals project ongoing across the country.

Hadi Sirika explained before the Senate Committee that the amount was needed to tackle some challenges encountered in the process of building the terminals due to change in the structural design of the airports, foundation footing and escalators.

“The challenges have resulted in the need for variation and additional works to the tune of US $461m, which has been approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) and  China Exim Bank has also indicated willingness to consider funding additional works,” he said.

The minister also solicited the support of the National Assembly and other stakeholders to ensure all needed equipment necessary for safety and security were provided to meet the Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs) as outlined by regulatory aviation bodies.
