By Emeka Akataobi

As part of effort geared towards ensuring adequate security for air travelers, the state government and airport management of Asaba International Airport has been provided with four patrol vehicles.

Chief Patrick Ukah the Secretary to the Delta State Government (SSG) gave the assurance when he commissioned four patrol vehicles provided by the Asaba Airport Company for the security personnel in the airport.

According to him,Chief Ukah said that the decision of the state government to concession the airport was the right step taken as it had reduced some financial burden on the government, adding that by the concessioning, funds had been freed up for the government to carry out more infrastructural development in the state as it was costing it a lot to maintain the airport.

Chief Ukah said because of the importance the government placed in the security in and around the airport, it awarded a contract for the construction of the perimeter road around the airport.

He said this will enable the security personnel to effectively patrol the airport on a twenty-four hour basis.

The SSG admonished the various security personnel that were given the patrol vehicles to ensure that they use them for the purpose for which they were given and not for their personal use.

Earlier, the Executive Director, Government Relations, Asaba Airport Company, Mr. Okechukwu Nelson-Moore, said the company decided to provide the patrol vehicles for the security personnel in the airport in order to aid them to effectively carry out their duties of patrolling the airport.
