Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has reacted to Kayode Ogundamisi’s tweet on twitter for saying the Akure Airport should be “shut down”.
Kayode Ogundamisi reacted to a tweet that “Ekiti Airport Loading”. He responded by saying “Ekiti Airport? Needless. Even Akure Airport needs to be shut down, a lot of airports across Nigeria are vanity projects.
We either close Ibadan and leave Akure or close Akure and leave Ibadan. Not sustainable. Focus on South West road networks to link Oodua States.”
In a series of tweet, Governor Akeredolu reacted to the tweet that it is unwise to ask for the Airport to be shut down.
In Akeredolu’s tweets, “It would be most unwise to shutdown the Akure Airport. In 2018 it was the second fastest growing airport by passenger traffic according to @FAAN_Official (136% growth). We have seen how that has resulted in a new terminal and Jobs at the airport. Do not kill progress.”
He stressed that ” This wouldn’t be possible if not for the strong support given the state by @flyairpeace and @OverlandAirways who fly daily to and from Lagos and Abuja respectively. We continue to appreciate your support in our drive to #DevelopOndo”
