MD, FAAN, Mr. George Uriesi
The Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mr. George Uriesi, has acknowledged that the level of work done at the Benin Airport was commendable and that the project was ready for inauguration.
Uriesi made the observation while inspecting the level of work done at the airport in company with FAAN directors and other senior officials.
The inspection tour also took the team to three other airports namely Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri, Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu and the Port Harcourt International Airport.
Uriesi, who addressed the contractors of the different projects on site, noted that ongoing remodelling project was long overdue, and called on airport users to bear with the authority concerning the inconveniences they had to go through during the project execution, since such hassles normally accompany repairs of an existing facility while operations continue.
He inspected the level of work done at each of the four airports and called on all the entire contractors to see themselves as stakeholders in the aviation industry by giving the best service they could render, so that Nigerian airports would become a true hub in the West African sub-region.
