Latest Development about the Jos airport

The Governor of Plateau State , Simon Lalong has made provision in this year’s budget to expand and develop the perishable cargo terminal at the Jos airport in other to facilitate the evacuation and distribution of farm produce and livestock from the state.

The perishable cargo terminal has been lying fallow at the airport. Governor Lalong  disclosed this when he spoke with Aviation reporters at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.  said that quick evacuation of farm produce would help the farmers make maximum profits from their crops and also ensure that they are sold out.

The Governor said “The Jos airport is already designated as international cargo airport. It is only that it has not been used for a very long time. So when we came in we went to the place and we have it in the budget to expand the place and provide the necessary facilities so that we can use the airport properly as cargo airport.

Secondly we now focus on agriculture as you mentioned. A lot of farm produce comes through Jos, from Maiduguri and other parts of the neighboring states. “Jos is a transit to about five states, so all of them will pass through the airport.

Because of that we need collaboration with the federal government so we will quickly do the expansion and take advantage of the international cargo airport that we have.”
