DELTA State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa said on Wednesday that the Asaba International Airport would be upgraded to required standard
with an additional cargo terminal to boost business activities.

The Governor made the disclosure in Asaba while performing the ground-breaking ceremony for the Asaba City Mall which will cost about 40 million US dollars.

“I believe that the airport development in Asaba is something that will help business to grow, though, there were some issues, we
have made progress and the contractor is already back to site,” he said.

He continued: “I believe that in another six months, our airport will be of the required standard that all planes can land and we are planning to build the Cargo airport which will definitely be of much interest to the companies that are developing the Asaba City Mall because they can bring their goods and services to Asaba from other parts of the world with greater speed and ease.”
