Erm, is this really Sokoto Airport baggage claim area? (Photos)

A LIB reader passing through the airport this morning took the photos and sent it in. Is this what the baggage claim area of Sokoto Airport really looks like? Is the airport currently undergoing renovations? See more photos after the cut...

Hehe u go fear now! I hear PH one is just as bad, but is due to renovation, let's hope that is d case here

at least thank God say u see port land put. The govt should be ask many questions. the Port Harcourt baggage claim area is no much different from that too just a tarpolin to cover thats what they put there. Lagos only has the most standard airport.

Na every time the airport they temporary construction? who is deceiving who?abeg is been like dat since. even PH dats how dem dey say he dey temporary construction, when the temporary go permanent. We have the money to make it permanent but naija political robbers would not allow it.

it is thinking poverty thinking like this that has gotten us Nigeria to this pathetic standard of living that we endure in nigeria

@ Jagz pls keep quiet

I am currently residing in sokoto and I often use the airport. The main block has been completely raised down and rebuilt, now it is 95% complete. Very magnificent structure. the person that sent the picture to you has a very bad mind and it is because of such people that Nigeria is not developing. The sadder story is that they have a platform like lindaikeji.blogspot that will post their pics without verification

Anonymous said...

I was there Nov 2013. The airport is undergoing a MAJOR transformation. This is just temporary but also very embarrassing and they also do MANUAL SEARCH on luggage.

And u nigga, talking trash bout port harcourt airport,, I'm sure u have never been close to any airport in your life talk less of entering.. b sure before u talk rubbish u hear!!

Pls oo! U people shld not compare this airport wit PH airport, if u hav flown recently u wld notice that d departure is now very kool and d arrival. Meanwhile Abj airport is also very good not only Lagos airport.

I don't get. What do you intend to achieve with this silly post? To ridicule the giant strides of GEJ administration as usual? If an Airport is under construction, how do u expect it to look like? Madam wan ur self ooo. Tell the goat that sent you this, that next time he should endeavor to capture the entire airport and sent to u.

Anonymous said...

I was there some days ago. It's under renovation. But it's very obvious that the things used esp the windows aren't of good quality, they already have cracks! Everything is being done manually. God help our country!

Anonymous said...

Linda you should know better. Try a little investigation before posting. The airport is under renovation. The baggage area is just like that of Lagos when renovation was going on. Be a little bit patriotic abeg.
The ex aviation minister did a fantastic job lets applaud her for it. Am currently out of the country and l could not believe my eyes when l got to MMA's departure hall.
Go take a look yourself & l hear it's same for most domestic airports. Let's give praises so others can emulate not just condemnation .....amaka

MY TURN said...

@Jagz even if the airport is going through refurbishing this is still a pathetic sight. Nothing unpatriotic about this. its good we see what the true picture of what things really look like.

LINDA, IT IS BETTER THIS WAY.....ANYTHING GOOD BUILT IN THE NORTH WILL BE DESTROYED BY BOKO HARAM. SO THEY SHOULD SPEND MONEY BUILDING BETTER AIRPORT FACILITIES FOR THESE IDIOTS TO BURN DOWN.

WE NEED MORE DEVELOPMENT IN THE EAST JOR.

This is exactly sokoto airport. Been there a couple of times and the waiting area is even a tent. The place is like in the 40's yet all the big shots in the north fly through there.

Unknown said...

Yes ooo datz xctly how it is....lol

Schiphol said...

All the pictures are very true and very correct. No Photoshop nor editing whatsoever. I shuttle this airport between Abuja and Sokoto and that is the true picture.
But I don't really see a big deal in the picture because even the international airports that are equipped with conveyor belt most other times handle baggage in this manner. Besides bad structures needing maintenance.

Unknown said...

Yes it is.

Anonymous said...

Linda thats how it is, but in fairness to them the airport is undergoing renovations. and between when i flew in january and 2nd week of February to Sokoto there was noticeable improvement, at least the waiting area is now completed and uesable.

Hello Linda my name is DIMBO ATIYA i beg you in the name of God to send me an email address i can send you true pictures of what Sokoto airport looks like. I had the privilege as an independent documentary Director to tour all the airports recently and I can confirm that this is the temporary check in area for the airport which was in use during the renovation. The airport has just been completed and put to use and these pictures are a deliberate attempt to embarrass the government . If this person was honest enough he or she would have given you pictures of what that airport looks like now. Its the best in the entire country. I beg you to send me your email and i will send you very recent pictures of the airport. Pls send to dimboatiya@yahoo.com and i will contact you back immediately. Thank you.
