Delta State Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has expressed confidence that commercial activities will be in full swing at the Asaba International Airport in July, this year.

Speaking during an inspection visit to the airport today (01/03/18) the Governor expressed joy that the contractor handling the reconstruction of the runway, Setraco had proven that the project could be delivered within three months.

“From the work programme, it may be possible for Setraco to complete the project in three and half months, the speed with which they mobilised to site is wonderful, we thank God for intervening which made us to re-award the contract,” the Governor said, emphasising, “we are confident that in another four months, there will be a lot of bigger planes landing here.”

Engr Jihad Yahgi, Area Manager, Setraco who explained the level done so far, disclosed that apart of the runway, the company was in the process of completing the water channels at the airport.
