The airport, formerly known as Dr Abubakar Imam International Airport, has now been named Bola Ahmed Tinubu International Airport.

This is coming as the President visits Minna, Niger state, to officially flag off Agricultural Revolution Project, commission the Minna Airport, and lay the foundation of the Hajj Terminal.

The state’s commissioner for Information and strategies, Hon. Binta Mamman, while briefing Journalists in Minna, Niger State, on March 10, said that in addition to the commissioning of the airport, the President would also inaugurate the 5,000 pieces of agricultural equipment procured by the state government.

She disclosed that other engagements of the President would be a guided tour of the facilities at the remodelled airport terminal and later lay the foundation for Hajji terminal at the airport before returning to Abuja.


Mamman said: “All measures have been put in place to ensure the success of the programme. According to her, the projects to be commissioned by the presidents were undertaken within nine months of the Mohammed Umar Bago’s administration.
