Reading Time: 1 minute

[Abuja]–The Federal Government, through the Aviation Minister, Hadi Sirika  says it would open up all government owned airports to private investment.

The minister, who disclosed this at a press conference in Abuja, says, “all government-owned airports will be offered to investors who have “the wherewithal, the know-how, the technology, the capacity, the ability, the finance to put up huge fantastic edifices as airports with everything including hotels, just the way you see them abroad.”

The minister, however, did not specify when the government airports would be opened to investment, or provide any other details, Reuters reports.

Abuja’s airport is set to close for six weeks for repairs on the runway, after it had become so damaged that international carriers were pulling their services or warning they may soon have to.
