Anambra doesn’t need airport –Chidoka

Tony Okafor, Awka

A former Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, on Monday, asked the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, to jettison the idea of building an airport in the state.

Chidoka described the project as a misplaced priority.

Obiano had, in April this year, kicked off the N2bn Umueri International Cargo Airport project, saying this was in fulfillment of his campaign promises of making Anambra State an international economic hub.

But speaking at the golden jubilee celebration of the Anglican Bishop on the Niger, Rt. Rev. Owen Nwokolo, in the basilica at St Andrews Anglican Church, Chidoka said the state did not need an airport now.

Obiano, who was at the same gathering, had earlier listed the airport project as one of the numerous achievements of his three-year administration that would qualify him for re-election.
