Gateway International Airport will Revolutionize Air Transportation in S/West – Gbajabiamila

Chief of Staff to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has affirmed that the Gateway International Agro-Cargo and Passenger Airport has the potential of revolutionising air transportation in the South-West region and Nigeria as a whole.

Rt. Hon. Gbajabiamila, who stated this during a chat with newsmen at the airport shortly after attending the commissioning of the Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona School of Governance Studies and presentation of a book titled, “Reinventing Governance in Nigeria: The Oba (Dr.) Sikiru Kayode Adetona Model,” at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, said the airport had set the stage for the state to become a transportation hub.

He added that the Airport would help drive the economy of the state, neighbouring states and the country as a whole, commending the bold initiative of the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, for believing in the project and forging ahead with it, toward improving the ease of doing business in the state.

“I was surprised at what it looked like inside. The outside belies the inside, and I think the governor has done a good job. He deserves to be commended.

“I believe this Airport was built in two years and some months and that is a short period within which to complete an airport such as this.

“It has the longest Runway and you know what that means. So, all in all, we have to give kudos to the governor.

“This is my first time at the Airport. I have heard so much about it; I am so proud of it.

“You know it is one thing to put your money somewhere to do something and do it for the sake of doing it. But when you do something and you believe in it and you have a passion for what you are doing, the output, the product, is different because you put your all into it and that is what I see here in this airport”, he said.

The Chief of Staff described the administration of Governor Abiodun as transformative, with many infrastructural projects across the state, noting that, “Each time I come here, I see what his administration is doing, especially in terms of infrastructural development and I give kudos to His Excellency, the governor.”.
