Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde says plans by his administration to make Ibadan Airport (a regional transportation hub) are on course.

He made this known while receiving the Air Officer Commanding, AOC, Logistics Command, Ikeja, Air Vice Marshal Olaonipekun Makinde on a courtesy call at the Governor’s Office, Secretariat, Ibadan.

The governor said his administration would improve social services and expand infrastructure at the airport to enhance the economic growth of the state.

Governor Makinde explained that his government was poised to expand the runway so that bigger aircraft could land at the airport, which according to him should be a true alternative to Lagos.

He appreciated the Nigerian Air Force, especially the NAF Detachment, Ibadan for its contribution to the security architecture in the state, also congratulating Air Vice Marshal Makinde on his appointment as the AOC, Logistics Command, Lagos.

The governor commiserated with the entire Air Force over the loss of officers and men in the air accident which occurred in Abuja recently.

Earlier, Air-Vice Marshal Makinde appreciated the governor for supporting the Air Force.

He assured the governor that NAF would continue to be committed to ensuring the security of lives and property in the state.
