Ogun Cargo Airport To Serve As Nigeria’s Non Oil Export Terminal
Governor Dapo Abiodun says that federal government has indicated its interest to designate the Ogun Agro Cargo International Airport under construction at Ilishan-Remo, as Nigeria’s non oil export terminal.
He also says the airport could serve as the cargo export hub for the entire West Africa region, adding that his administration is in talks with DHL and Ethiopian airlines to relocate their cargo activities to the airport when completed.
The governor announced this on Monday, during the fifth coronation and the sixtieth birthday reception of the Akarigbo of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi in Sagamu.
The cargo airport, according to the governor, would provide a lot of services that Murtala Mohammed international airport could not offer its users.
For instance, the governor said unlike the Lagos airport, the cargo airport would cater for passengers and cargo.
The governor also said the cargo airport which is built to category six, has an apron that is four time the size of the one at Lagos airports.
Abiodun also said the four kilometre of the Ilishan Remo airport is longer than that of Lagos airport.
