From Suleiman Idris, Lagos

The Federal Government yesterday reiterated its commitment to ensure new airport terminals being constructed by Chinese consortium in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt will become operational by the middle of 2018.
While those of Lagos at the international wing of the Murtala Muhammad Airport and that of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja are billed to commence operations by June, the FG said that of Port Harcourt has reached 80% completion.
The disclosure was made by the Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Engr. Saleh Dunoma at an interactive forum with members of the League of Airports and Aviation Correspondents (LAAC), tagged “Gateway Forum” after he commissioned the press centre name Saleh Dunoma Press Centre by LAAC.
While explaining the challenge that led to the slow pace of works at the buildings, he revealed that variation in exchange rate of N165 to a dollar at the time the contracts were awarded and the present rate of over N350 were some of the hiccups experienced.
Dunoma said “works have gone far in all our construction sites and l can tell you that barring any unforeseen circumstances, my midyear, the terminals will be delivered. Especially Lagos and Abuja, if you have visited Abuja of late you will discover that everything is near completion, even the avid bridge are there now. In fact all that is left are the fittings and all those materials needed are on ground waiting to be fixed”.
