Enugu Runway: FAAN heaves a sigh of relief as obstruction to safety removed

Succour has finally come the way of the federal Airports Authority of Nigeria FAAN, as the impediments to the safe landing and security at the Enugu International airport are to the removed.
These impediments are television and Radio masts and a local market that has encroached on the airport land.
The Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria FAAN  Saleh Dunoma who disclosed this in a chat with aviation journalists at the gateway forum of the League of Airports and Aviation Correspondents in Lagos said, Enugu state government had given approval for the dismantling of the two obstructing masts on runway 08 and the relocation of a  community market at the other end of the runway to ensure security.
According to Dunoma, the governor of Enugu state last week during the visit of the aviation Minister to the governor ordered the dismantling of the two masts and relocation of the community market to give way for proper expansion and to ensure security  of the airport.
Dunoma explained that restiveness from communities around the airport has warded off contractors installing the lighting facilities at the airport adding that all the lighting facilities were on ground but could not be installed as a result of hostilities from the communities around the airport.
It will be recalled that concerned authorities in the aviation sector had on several occasions called for  action in the  dismantling of the two obstructing masts on the runway 08 of the Akanu Ibiam international airport Enugu as it  posed  a threat to safety.
