The Minister of State, Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika,
says the Federal Government will concession the Abuja, Lagos, Port
Harcourt and Kano international airports in the first phase of its
Sirika disclosed this at the 2016 Aviation Stakeholders Forum on Monday in Abuja.
“The thinking is that just like
every other place in the world, we will concession our airports and we
are beginning with the big four: Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano.It would have been ideal to take
them to some level of acceptance for them to attract more. But I think
we just get those guys who believe that in Nigeria they can create a hub
geographically given by God.To come and put in their money and create this hub, build these airports, concession them, run them and make money out of them,” she said.
