Nigerian citizen in person of Dr. Joe Abah, took it upon himself to share the amazing new sights from the ‘New Abuja International Airport Terminal’ which was commissioned on the 20th December, 2018 by PMB. According to his tweets, he is amazed by how Nigeria has improved from the Airport hospitality. Read tweets below,
“Good afternoon. I have some good news. The new Abuja International Airport terminal is…mind blowing! As we alighted from the aircraft into the glass tunnel, you know that smell that usually hits you when you land in Nigeria? It wasn’t there. The AC in the tunnel worked.
It’s real, guys. This is Naija. I had arrived on Ethiopian Airlines with my work colleague, Duke, who is visiting Nigeria for the first time ever. Duke said “Wow! Now this is an airport!” We had come in from the dreadful Addis Ababa Bole Airport. I just said “Yeah.”
“I didn’t feel the need to tell Duke it was new…until he asked. 😂 Boarding gates were spacious and nicely laid out. Comfortable waiting areas. Very clear signage everywhere. Yep! I checked: The clock displayed the right time. I was proud.”
“Then we were stopped by Customs! One stopped me and one stopped my friend Duke and asked what was in our bags. I said “I have brought him to Nigeria for the very first time.” They asked me “Oh, is he with you? I said “Yes.” They said “Ok you can go.”
He went on,
“I was a bit miffed that they didn’t say “Welcome to Nigeria” to Duke. Anyway, this sign made me feel better. That I could see a sign to the Metro from a Nigerian airport? Great! Yes, we should worry about maintenance. For me, I’ll just enjoy it today and be proud! Thanks!! End.
