He also announced 15 April for the reopening of the Port Harcourt and May 3 for the reopening of the Enugu international airports for international flights.

Sirika explained that contrary to belief, MAKIA and other airports closed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country were not reopened like others, due to any motive explaining that government needed to streamline points of entry to enable it check the pandemic.

“The airports were shut down, like others across the world. We closed our airports as that was where the virus came into the country. We reopened some after many considerations with the other stakeholders. There was no ulterior motive for not reopening of the Kano or other airports. There are processes to be followed,” Sirika said.
