Buhari In Rivers To Inaugurate New Airport Terminal
President Muhammadu Buhari is in Port Harcourt for the inauguration of the new International Terminal at the Port Harcourt International Airport.
He arrived in the southern state on Thursday at about 12:20 p.m. local time for the inauguration.
One other top government official at the event was the
Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika.
The new international terminal at the Port Harcourt Airport is one of the four terminals built with a $500 million loan from China in 2013.
Nigeria provided $100 million as counterpart funding for the projects.
Based on the agreements, the projects were billed for delivery in 18 months, but that did not happen.
The Port Harcourt International Terminal is the first first to the completed, with Abuja, Kano and Lagos already in the works.
In 1015, Port Harcourt International Airport was voted the world’s worst airport.
The airport topped the Guide to Sleeping in Airports world’s worst airports 2015 list, which surveyed over 26,000 air travellers to find out the best and worst airports around the globe.
All that ranking must have changed. See how fine it is.
