Governors from the South East, including leaders of thought from the region are currently in the presidential villa, Abuja, to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The delegation which came on the auspices of the South East Governors Forum, came to prevail on the presidency to rescind it’s decision on the closure of Akanu Ibiam International airport over some repair works.
Recall that the Federal Government recently ordered the closure of the airport on the grounds that it wants to carry out repair works, but several weeks after, no contractor had been mobilised to site on account of financial constraints.
The development may have compelled leaders of thought from the region to meet with Buhari with a view to persuading him to reconsider his decision, especially as it was stiffling business activities in the affected states.
