Just in: Akure Airport reopens for business

The Akure Airport which was temporarily shut following the discovery of a suspicious crater, has reopened for business.

Our correspondent gathered that the swift response of the Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN was helpful in bringing the busy Airport back to business.

“But for the prompt intervention of the governor, it would have taken some ti.e to be back on stream; we thank God we are fully back after three days of hitches.

“Hopefully from Thursday, we will commence operations to our destinations. All intending passengers are even being contacted to follow up on this development”, he said.

The Ondo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo confirmed that the State Government had to intervene in the interest of the people and businesses.

“There is nothing unusual in the Governor’s intervention because it has to do with the people, their businesses and those of investors.

“This is not the first time Mr Governor will intervene in the affairs of Federal Government agencies whenever there was need to do so.

“I know there is likely to be resumption of flights but you can confirm from the Airport authorities for official confirmation in respect of this, please,” Ojogo said.
