The Executive Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has stated that discussions are in progress with investors, development partners and other stakeholders on the construction of another airport in Edo.

According to Obaseki, the new airport will be built in Edo north senatorial district.

He said the new airport will improve the state’s transportation network and boost the economy.

“One of the major things that I want to do is to build an airport. Access is key, and if people can fly in directly, it will improve the economy of the state.

“We have been working on improving the transportation network in Edo state; we have done some studies and found out that an airport in Edo North is feasible, particularly given the level of investment that we are making in that direction.

“Don’t forget that there are two cement plants in the state, major universities and several other economic opportunities that are involved, and to get people there, we need an airport to make access easy. We are in discussion with the relevant authorities already.”
