Work On Benue Cargo Airport Begins Today

Work will begin today on the Benue Cargo Airport at Daudu, Guma Local Government Area.

The project is undertaken by Airotropolis Nigeria Ltd.
Benue State government officials, led by the governor’s  Chief of Staff, Terwase Orbunde, at the weekend, formally introduced Airotropolis Nigeria Ltd to the host community.

He was accompanied by commissioners for Works and Justice Emmanuel Mange; Mike Gusah and the traditional ruler of Guma council, Chief Ivoko Unongu.

Orbunde told the host community the government was happy the project was under way.
He enjoined them to cooperate with Airotropolis and the government during the construction.

The chief of staff assured them of fairplay in negotiation of compensations and job placements at the Airport.

Project Manager Dr. Basil John admitted that Benue got the Cargo Airport through the effort of Governor Samuel Ortom.

He said the Cargo Airport would make Benue a destination hub for heavy machines and agricultural products, adding that soon there will be an Aviation School, with a capacity to graduate 50 students each from the 23 local governments.
