All over the country, Nigerians, visitors and travellers in and out of the nation are preparing to embrace the worst as the main airport shuts down on Tuesday.
The government is to close down Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja for the next six weeks to fix a runway which is filled with cracks and holes.
Authorities have confirmed the task can’t be done with traffic and unless |the whole airport is closed.
All travellers who which to fly into the country or out of the country through the Abuja airport must utilize a much more smaller domestic airport in which is in Kaduna.
Kaduna is three hours drive from the capital city Abuja. And with recent killings by the Fulani have put much fear in the hearts of travellers who have to travel through one of the fearful Kaduna-Abuja highway, known to be home for kidnappers and robbers.
In return for a guaranteed safety, the authorities have promised to have promise reinforced police and soldiers with military equipment along the highway. Many international airlines have previously stated they will not fly into Kaduna.
The biggest problem with the work is not with the passengers who have to adjust their travelling plans, but with the massive airport workers whom will go weeks and months without pay.
