 Mr.  Akan  Okon  Akwa  Ibom State Commissioner for Housing and Special Duties, has revealed the state government significant progress of the Ibom International Airport in the past three years as a result of the plan Governor Udom Emmanuel attaches to such infrastructure.

He noted that Akwa Ibom Airport in Uyo has undergone a huge investment in the aviation sector by the state government.

According to him, the airport was powered by generators for 12 years.

He added that a whopping N25 million was spent monthly for fuelling the generators, apart from other expenses on maintenance.

“Now, two big transformers-12 megawatts each- are erected outside to guarantee regular electricity supply. Our Airport has been run on generator since inception. But I am happy to tell you that this government has successfully completed a power substation to power the Airport. We believe this is going to ensure that the Airport is run efficiently,” Okon said.

Okon further stated that in addition, 22 compact transformers have been installed at the airport.

The commissioner explained that the airport was built by the state government to boost the economy of the state.
