Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State on Thursday assured the National Airspace Management Authority (NAMA) that he would tackle some of the challenges confronting the Akure airport.

Akeredolu gave the assurance in Akure during a visit by Mr Adebayo Ogunleye, the new Airspace Manager of  NAMA at the airport, to the Government House.

He said  the Akure airport, billed to be a cargo port, was very important to the economic programmes of the present administration in the state.

“We will see what to do about the runway lights, bad roads and lack of vehicles, ‘’  he said.

The governor, however, said whatever the state government would do in  form of assistance would be integrated into  the 2019 budget.

Earlier, Ogunleye said the agency was committed to the safety of   travellers and would  continue to ensure the efficacy of  equipment for successful flights.

“We have been trained on all sorts of equipment;  I was sent here to be part of the team that would install the Instrument Landing System (ILS) that would be deployed to this state,” he said.

He explained that the ILS enabled flights at all times would allow the pilot to land even in adverse weather conditions.

The manager, however, appealed to the governor to assist the agency in fixing the airport’s runway edge light that would enable flights to take off and land at night. (NAN)
