Abuja airport closes, flights relocate to KD... What do you think?

Abuja airport will close from midnight for six weeks to undergo repairs on its runway which have been overdue for 15 years.

Aircraft will now use Kaduna airport, 190km (120 miles) to the north, to and from which passengers will be transferred by bus along a road where there have been kidnappings.

About 12,000 people usually fly in and out of Abuja every day - so what do you  think about the relocation of flights to Kaduna? And what's your take on the overdue repairs?

That a whole national airport can be closed down for repairs is simply irresponsible and goes to show how mediocre our project designs are.
That airport should have been built ab initio to be massive and have many wings, such that repairs can go on in segments without disrupting flights and certainly without closing down the whole airport.
Our leaders are yet to understand that Nigerian projects are supposed to serve 180 million people. They design it as if they are for their home towns alone.
The only time Nigerian leaders remember to build big is when they  build their own houses.

I think the repairs are in order but govt should not have waited until the facilities are in total breakdown!... There should be enough security for those using buses after leaving the Kaduna airport. The route should be policed or else, kidnapping will be high!... The govt should always ensure repairs are done on time so that future cases like this are avoided.

Many things in our dear country are deteriorating in quality owing to the fact that most of them are built with inferior and "not-really durable" materials and the few built with authentic materials were not well-maintained... Due to many petty reasons; unhealthy competition between politicians, embezzlement of contract fees, inadequate power supply, carefree and lackadaisical attitude from stakeholders etc...

As in the case of the airport here, we should stop "managing" when we can do better for ourselves... I mean, we can't and shouldn't lower our standards to fit the facilities instead we should strive and bring our facilities up to the standard we want. Not waiting many years, as if the whole world must go on holidays before we can build whatever it is we want to build...
