Runway lights at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja went off yesterday evening stalling the landing and taking off of planes. All the international planes that were meant to land at the airport in Abuja yesterday were re-routed to Lagos and Port Harcourt. Lufthansa, British Airways, and Air France flights had to land in Lagos where passengers where offered accommodation, while an Arik Flight coming from Port Harcourt was forced to return to PH.
This is the third time this year that blackouts will be recorded at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, and they are yet to find a permanent solution to it. I think the aviation industry needs a total overhauling; starting with the resignation of the minister in charge of the sector!
