‘N13bn Bauchi air­port to boost rev­enue’

Daily Trust - - AVIATION - From Ahmed Mo­hammed, Bauchi

The Bauchi State Govern­ment has ex­plained that the newly con­structed N13 bil­lion Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa In­ter­na­tional Air­port would boost its in­ter­nally gen­er­ated rev­enue.

The Chief Press Sec­re­tary to the Gover­nor, Mr Ishola Micheal Adeyemi, made this known, yes­ter­day, dur­ing a fa­cil­ity tour by jour­nal­ists in Bauchi.

He said apart from boost­ing eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties in the state, the air­port will bring in­vestors to the state, thereby cre­at­ing more em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Adeyemi said: “The newly con­structed air­port will also serve as an al­ter­na­tive cargo air­port for Kano State so that traders who de­sire to trans­act busi­ness in Bauchi, can do so with­out tak­ing road trans­porta­tion. This will ease their stress and make their trav­els com­fort­able.”
