The newly-constructed international terminal at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja would be inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, an official said on Monday in Abuja.

Managing director of the  Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mr. Saleh Dunoma, told the News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) that all requirements to make the facility functional had been met.

Dunoma added that the terminal, which was being constructed by the China Civil Engineering and Construction Company, would be ready to commence operation immediately after its inauguration on Thursday.

He assured that all issues that could stop airlines from commencing operation at the terminal had been addressed, adding that all international airlines had expressed their readiness to use the facility.

“Some foreign airlines would have loved to move in earlier than this, but we have to wait until the contractors finish the project.

“But the terminal building is ready for operation because everything that can make it work are already in place.

“There were some problems that were discovered by the engineers earlier, which are very minor, and we drew the attention of the contractor and they have rectified them.

“We are working towards December 20, which was the date given by the minister of aviation.

“The foreign airlines are willing to start using this facility immediately and we are working with them.

“They have gone through the entire terminal and they have seen that the new terminal is a lot better than what we have before now in terms of equipment, installations, space facilitation and comfort.
