The former Senator representing Anambra Central in the Senate, Senator Annie Okonkwo has commended the Anambra State Government led by Chief Willie Obiano over the Construction of the new Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport.
The senator who flew into the state on Tuesday, 1st February, 2022, with a private jet from Lagos, disclosed that the Airport Project was timely and would impact positively on the economic development of the state.
According to Senator Okonkwo, Anambra citizens are the most travelled in the south east region. With the construction of the Anambra International Passenger and Cargo Airport, the issue of unemployment, youth restiveness, and stress suffered by Ndi Anambra to go through the Asaba, Owerri and Enugu airports will soon be a thing of the past.
“Investment in air transport infrastructure has proven not to be a bad idea because it serves as a major source for crucial development drivers bringing both economic and social benefits to the state and the region at large”, Senator Okonkwo said.
“The Anambra International Passenger and Cargo Airport is already creating jobs since it was constructed. I am personally delighted and commend the Anambra State Government led by Willie Obiano over this gigantic project”, he concluded.
