The Commissioner for Works and Transport, Kebbi, Alhaji Abubakar Ladan, has refuted claims of selling the Ahmadu Bello International airport to a private Individual.

Ladan who made the disclosure to newsmen on Thursday in Birnin Kebbi said the Federal Government has taken over the Airport, NAN reports.

According to him,” There is no iota of truth in the rumour going round that the state government is planning to sell the Sir Ahmadu Bello International Airport to a private individual.”

“All the airports in the country are in the exclusive list. There is no way any state government can convert them as their own or sell them to individuals.

“I don’t know how the story came about that the airport (Sir Ahamdu Bello International Airport) had been sold.

“Who was it sold to? I want to use this occasion to tell you the true story of the airport.

“The aviation sector is in the exclusive list and any state that wants to construct an airport must get a clear approval from the federal government.

“So, once you construct the airport, you only have the manager, but the technical crew handling the airport is the federal government’s staff and those of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

“You do not have the right to regulate the airport. We only agreed to allow the federal government to take over the airport because of management issue and other things.

“It is not the issue of sales; the federal government took over the airport of Kebbi State, and we demanded that the amount we used to construct it be refunded to the state,” he said.
