Today, the first international cargo flight landed at the Akanu Ibiam Airport Enugu state. The pictures tell it all, with an excited Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi surrounded his other dignitaries.
Here are the words of the governor:
Three years ago, precisely on the 24th of August, 2013, we welcomed the first ever international passenger flight to Enugu operated by the Ethiopian Airlines.
Today, we have gathered again to celebrate the first landing of cargo at this same Airport and which once more, has happened courtesy of the Ethiopian Airlines.
Ladies and Gentlemen, may I once again, thank you all for coming and it is my pleasure to invite everyone, more especially the business moguls, to take full advantage of this new service, for the benefit of all.
