Yobe State To Build First Cargo Airport In The North
Yobe State Commissioner for Works, Transport and Energy, Sirajo Wakil yesterday in Damaturu disclosed that the State Government will soon award a contract for the construction of the first ever cargo airport in Northern Nigeria.
According to Wakil, the airport would be for ticketing as well as for cargo and would be located in Damaturu, the state capital.
He noted that after the completion, the airport would be the first of its kind in the North, because there is no cargo airport in the whole of Northern Nigeria.
By the way, of the six states in the North-East, Yobe has been named the most insecure out of them all, by the latest report released by the United Nations Development Programme in collaboration with Oxfam Nigeria.
