Former Governor Chukwuemeka Ezeife of Anambra State has urged the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority to go ahead with the inauguration of the Anambra State Airport.
Ezeife gave the charge on Friday in a statement he issued in Enugu following the failure to inaugurate the airport.
He said the security situation in the South East was not too serious to stop the inauguration of the facility.
He stated that Nigeria as a nation had always faced one challenge or another.
Ezeife said: “I have looked at the whole scenario and found that the situation looks politically motivated and this is definitely wrong.
“Anambra Airport has been under construction for a long time and I was informed that all the relevant authorities have given their certification at one point or another.
“So what is the problem now?”
Ezeife, therefore, advised all the relevant regulatory authorities not to succumb to undue pressure “to thwart what is a developmental agenda for Nigeria”.
