Mrs. Yakubu apologized to travelers and other stakeholders for the inconveniences caused by the partial closure of the runway to pave way for its rehabilitation.

The first phase of the repairs were executed from December 14th to December 21st, 2017 while the second phase started from December 27th, 2017 to January 4th. During the period, the airport was open for operations only between 7am and 3pm to enable the contractor to continue with work for a “stable and even surface” of the runway. The project was, however, delayed for a few days before the runway was finally opened for full flight operations.
