Benue State Airport Project Is A Big Fraud ~ Tsav

A former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, has described the cargo airport project by the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, as unnecessary and economically not viable.

Ortom flagged off the N38bn airport project on Saturday at Daudu in Guma Local Government Area of the state.

Speaking in Makurdi yesterday, Tsav queried the usefulness of the project in the face of more pressing challenges.

He said: “Has Ortom no economic advisers? If he has, are they advising him at all? Nasarawa State, our neighbour, has an airport. Can’t we use that for now if we have any crops for export?  Where are even the crops to export?

I see the project as a conduit to syphon our money and a deliberate attempt to take over the NYSC  farmland where maize is cultivated in large quantities annually by youth corps members.

“Our roads in Benue State are not good. In some areas there are even no roads. What farmers require now are fertiliser for crops and good roads to convey their produce to the cities. The Benue State Airport Project is a big fraud.”


  1. Mr. Tsav gooder brain you have there, where are the farming passing with the crops before reaching the airport when there are no roads?

  2. What tsav said is true,let tell u dat, if ortom get an adviser he should have advise him not 2 do road in some areas and fetilizer is problem to benue p ple.thanks moses kasar

  3. Ortom is a thief has he paid the salaries in his state before embarking on such a project
