Photos: 1st international flight lands at newly opened Enugu Airport

The recently opened Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu recorded its first ever international flight today Saturday August 24th. An Ethiopian Airline which flew in from Addis Ababa landed at the airport around 12:15pm today. The flight was welcome with wild jubilation from people who gathered at the airport to witness the event. Four Nigerians governors, Theodore Orji of Abia, Peter Obi of Anambra, Martin Elechi of Ebonyi and Sullivan Chime of Enugu were also there today to witness the historic event.

That's good for the people of Enugu and other Easteners. Now they can travel to other international country's without flewin down to Lagos. But hope is not going to course the Rise of Biafra.

nice job, kudos to all those who made this happen, especially the Minister of Aviation Mrs Oduah, probably the only Minister doing anything tangible. I'm impressed by the show of brotherly love by the other 3 Governors who joined Sullivan Chime, they can obviously see the bigger picture. Congrats Enugu State, congrats Nigeria....and this is from a yoruba man, pls let us stop the recent tribal tension & hatred between the Yorubas and Ibos, let's appreciate our diversity, it should actually make us stronger.

Jonathan is really doing a lot for the south-east. At least the dependence in lagos and porthacourt will reduce drastically. Only that, when time comes after 2019, the igbos cannot be president. That's my fear. He wll hand over to sambo and there is nothing we can do because he has shot our mouths wiv all d goodies he is giving us.

Awon ode which ibo's must go , if we leave you lazy Yorubas would be handicapped , the only thing you know is party , you all can party from Monday to Sunday awon oniranu , awon onidoti jati jati , you would rather your wives bring in the money for you ,the ones that have the so called money are into drugs and 419 . If we leave hunger go finish unna die .

Biafrans its time to build your land, @foolish yoruba man saying igbos must go, igbo's don't need you lazy goats

Am still wondering why this anti-Igbos Gov. Rochas Okorocha was absent, is it dat he dont like to see good things in Igbo land or what?
Whatever! I thank u Mr Presido and i urge u to pls do something in our educatnal 6tem cos that iz where the future of this great country depends on.
Long Live Johnathan!
Long Live Igbos!
