The Chairman, Senate adhoc committee on Aviation, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has said the second runway for the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja will be captured in the 2016 budget so the project can be executed without further delay.

Senator Kwankwaso gave the assurance shortly after he led other members of the committee to an oversight inspection of facilities at the Abuja airport.

Fielding questions from newsmen after the inspection, he said the Abuja airport's second runway will be a part of the recommendation that will be set on the Senate and that it will be included in the budget for 2016.

"So many people are involved in the second runway project especially the executive. Ours is to make our recommendations and make sure it is included in our 2016 budget," he said.

He added, "We have seen the facilities and we are concerned about some of the things we saw and we will make our recommendations to the Senate. Especially the issues of second runway and the maintenance of our equipment are considered. Maintenance needs to be improved upon, both minor and major ones."

Commenting on the relevance of the adhoc committee, he said, "the Senate set up an adhoc committee to access the situation in the aviation industry and make some suggestions so that together with other arms of government, we can move the industry forward."
