The Governor of Anambra State, weekend, noted that he is the only Nigerian Governor who does not receive monthly salary.
The governor made the statement at his country home, Aguleri, Anambra East Local Government Area shortly after inspecting the Anambra International Passenger and Cargo Airport at Umueri.
He said after his tax was deducted from his salary and sending the remaining balance to the house of the privilege, adding that he has been rending self-service for the state.
The governor who also described himself as “a man of classical quality,” said the airport was built with the best of facilities as can be obtained in any international airport of repute.
While inspecting the airport, he also said, “The orientation is that the aeroplane can land at either side of the runway. That was what happened on April 30th, 2021, when we did the test flight, one landed on 024 and the other one landed on 06. This airport has two Runway Air Safety Areas, RASA. This is the only airport in Nigeria with this type of RASA. It has category two light which means that the airplane can land at the worst of any weather in this airport.
“It also has satellite facilities which means that if the light is not working, aircraft can land with the satellite facilities. So with what we have on this airport, it would be difficult to have a cancelled flight.
“It is the only airport in Nigeria with this type of satellite facilities. This is the only airport in Nigeria that is current with the Friction Test. Before the airplane landed on the 30th, we carried out the test and got 0.79 which is the highest so far in this country. The height of the Control Tower is 34.5.”
