Completion Date Of Asaba Airport Uncertain

The opening of Asaba Airport is further delayed and the airport in Delta State will not open its doors in 2010. A test flight was made at the airport in mid-November,  but the project is now more than a year behind schedule and beset with negative news reports. A protest of sub-contractors over non-payment by the main contractor ULO Constructions turned violent in October for instance. It is also worrisome that the projected cost of the airport is suddenly raised from N7 Billion to N40 Billion by the State Government and the contractor.

    Worrisome? On account of the fact that the cost has increased sixfold? The place will be okayed for operations when everyone has had a cut.
