This followed the presentation and adoption of a motion entitled “Need for emergency reconstruction of the runway of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport Enugu.”

The sponsor of the motion, Senator Chukwuka Utazi, who painted a gloomy picture about the airport, warned that the lives travellers who use the airport may not be guaranteed if nothing was done to fix the airport urgently.

In a separate motion, Senator representing Balyelsa central, Emmanuel Paulker, called on the minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to ensure rehabilitation of degrading infrastructure in Abuja.
