Asaba Airport: New gateway to the East

22 July 2011

IN July 2008, it was a dream. Yet, Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State who saw a potential money-spinner, asked the former Chairman of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Vincent Ogbulafor, to lay the foundation stone in Asaba, the state capital. On Monday, the vision has been realised with the landing of a commercial plane on the Asaba International Airport.

The Commissioner for Information, Chike Ogeah said with the successful landing of commercial flights on the airport, it was an indication that the edifice was fully ready for the purpose it was built.

An ecstatic Ogeah had said that with the landing of two airliners from Abuja with passengers last week Wednesday, commercial flights to the Federal Capital Territory and Lagos were set.
