The Chairman of the Committee, Senator Rabiu Kwankwanso frowned at the state of the state of infrastructure at the airports and decried that in order to prevent it from total collapse, the government should take the infrastructure as priority.
He said, “I can say we are happy on one hand, but on the other hand, we are not happy because a lot still needed to be done in the aviation sector in this country.
“We have seen the decaying facilities at the two major airports and those needed to be replaced. We have seen ongoing projects. We will go back and make recommendations to the Senate so that we can move forward from where we are. We started from Abuja Airport where we saw the facilities and at the Lagos Airport too, we have seen several equipment.
Also commenting, Senator Stella Oduah said that the committee would recommend the best way to improve on the revenue drive within the industry to the government through the Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika.
“Ours is to make to write our reports and make recommendations to the government and find out the lapses and gaps in the system,” she said.
