True to the completion agenda, the State Government is taking aviation development in Akwa Ibom to another level, matching words with action.

This much was confirmed when the Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel inspected some strategic development projects at the Victor Attah International Airport which when completed will make Akwa Ibom a reference point in the aviation industry in Africa.

Facilities inspected include the Maintenance, Repairs and Overhaul, MRO Hanger, the International Terminal Building, and the 3.6-kilometer World-class Taxiway.

At the MRO, Governor Emmanuel expressed satisfaction with the pace of work, saying with materials already on the ground, the MRO, which he described as the biggest in Africa, would be ready for use and earn foreign exchange for the state.

From the MRO Hanger, the governor moved to inspect the International Terminal Building where the main structural work was near completion, giving way for installations of smart facilities which Governor Emmanuel confirmed had since arrived in 56 containers.

Upon completion of the projects, Akwa Ibom State would likely become the pacesetter in the aviation industry in Africa.
