Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State on Wednesday said that the ongoing international airport project at Onueke will be completed by 2022.
The governor disclosed this while inspecting the projects within and outside the metropolis.
He said, “This is 2020, we are looking at 2022 unfailingly to complete this airport project. Most of the important projects we are passionate about completing are this airport, the College of Medicine, dualisation of Abakaliki-Afikpo road, Abakaliki to Enugu, and the stadium. These are the major projects we have.
“The Bible says when men say there’s a casting down, we will say there’s a lifting up. Abraham followed God when He asked him to follow him to show him land, he believed God. When God sends you on a mission and you have a passion, He gives you a vision that you pursue with passion. Everything is possible to those who believe. You have to have the passion then, God will make a way for you.
“This is the terminal building for the airport. It is like two and a half size of the shopping mall. It is going to be the biggest terminal building in the country. We have done almost 90 percent of the pilling, and that’s the real work and it is where takes more money. What’s in the ground is more than what is coming up.”
