The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika has said the Federal Government will open up its airports to private investment.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, the Minister said, ‘’All government-owned airports will be offered to investors who have “the wherewithal, the know-how, the technology, the capacity, the ability, the finance to put up huge fantastic edifices as airports with everything including hotels, just the way you see them abroad.”

Sirika did not specify when the government airports would be opened to investment, or provide any other details.

Abuja’s airport is set to close for six weeks for repairs on the runway, after it had become so damaged that international carriers were pulling their services or warning they may soon have to.
