New Airport Terminals Require U.S.$500 Million Extra to Correct Defects

By Chris Agabi

About $500 million (N152.5 billion) extra is required to fix design anomalies in the on-going airport terminal buildings in four locations in the country Daily Trust has learnt.

The new terminal buildings, conceived by the previous administration, in Abuja, Kano, Lagos and Port Harcourt airports, were not sited at the proper locations before work commenced.

Daily Trust had exclusively reported that the new terminal building, located after terminal D at Abuja airport is badly located as it blocks the control tower, obstructs the fire tender and doesn't link to the existing terminals seamlessly.
