The takeoff grant for Maritime University and the construction of a terminal building at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, were also affected.
At present, flights cannot operate at night at the Enugu airport because there are no approach lights, which should be installed at both ends of the runway.
Hadi Sirika, minister of state for aviation, has said an upgrade of the airport would result in job creation and investments. However, the president says the national assembly’s actions will delay the completion of the project.
Here are some of the major projects whose provisions got slashed by the national assembly.
