Lawmakers in Nigeria’s House of Representatives are to investigate the poor rating of Nigeria’s airport even after over 400 billion Naira was appropriated for the expansion, modernisation and management of 17 domestic and five international airports.
The modernisation was carried out by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
At plenary on Wednesday, the lawmakers said the investigation would unravel why Nigerian airports were being rated poorly internationally.
The decision followed a motion by Honourable Garba Datti, on the need to understand the factors that have led to the inclusion of three of Nigeria’s airports in a list of 10 worst airports in the world, as contained in an international survey.
The House is also to look into the $1 billion dollars Chinese loan obtained by former President Jonathan’s administration for modernisation and remodelling of the airports.
