L-R: The Plateau State governor, Mr. Caleb Mutfwang and the managing director, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Mrs. Olubunmi Kuku when the FAAN boss paid him a visit in Jos, the Plateau State capital.

The managing director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mrs. Olubunmi Kuku has assured the Plateau State government of the authority’s support in the state’s ambition to become a major hub for agricultural products and improve Nigeria’s economy through airline cargo.

She made this commitment while receiving the state governor, Mr. Caleb Mutfwang at the Yakubu Gowon Airport, Jos.

The MD, accompanied by top management staff, described the state as rich in agrarian products with potential for local and global trade. She demonstrated the authority’s readiness to collaborate with the state government in establishing its cargo terminal and encouraged the state not to wait for major infrastructure before benefiting from selling and marketing its farm products.

“Your Excellency, Plateau State is poised to stand as one of Nigeria’s leaders in producing and transporting agricultural products,” she said. “My team is willing to work very closely with you and the expanded aviance cargo team. While we may need to put up some major cargo infrastructure, I don’t think we need to wait. I will suggest that we make this modular. Let’s start within our immediate environments. We can start marketing some of your perishable items and creating market days when we invite people from across the country to fly in and buy these products. That will spur those who are willing to invest in testing, packaging, crating, storing and transporting these produce all across the country. The possibilities are endless.”

The governor thanked Kuku for FAAN’s enthusiasm for the cargo business and promised to push until the state’s ambitions are met.

A statement by FAAN’s director of public affairs and consumer protection, Mrs. Obiageli Orah said the MD spent the rest of her visit to the Jos Airport on a tour of the facilities and had a fruitful engagement with the staff.
