The FAAN helmsman also spoke on the need to transform the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) into a hub saying it was a vital consideration to have the airport operate efficiently.
He emphasized the need to link the old and new terminal as well as the international and domestic terminals to improve transition around the airport.
Yadudu said: “That is a an important consideration for us, to have a hub to operate it efficiently, you need these connectivity, well in the first instance, we already have a committee to have this, and part of the success of that committee is that we have a linkage between the old and the new terminal, it was completed last week, it is not commissioned because the terminal itself is not yet commissioned.
“We have a proper linkage now between the old and the new buildings and talking about connectivity between the internationals and with the domestic we are working with government, we have designs for the most suitable ways to achieve the connectivity, buses and even a light rail proposal but right now we are at the development and planning stage.
