A  new international airport in Nigeria is on the way. The new international airport is a project of the Lagos State government and it would be situated in Lekki area of Lagos State. Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola, according to what Gistmaster.com gathered, is bent on ensuring that the airport is completed within 2 years.

 Lagos State Commissioner for commerce and industry, Adeniyi Oyemade said Lekki International airport is expected to gulp about $650 million (US Dollars). The government is working with some private investors on the airport project.

With this planned Airport, Lagos will have 3 airports at Ikeja,
Muritala & at Lekki, lagos.
Getting a larger and newer Airport will be nice for Lagos.
However, will it not be better to expand and modernize the
existing International Airport (Muritala Moh'd). How about old
Ikeja Airport? What will that be used for? Domestic flights only?

It's a good idea for a state government to embark on such project but it would have been good to put the existing one in shape, like air conditioner and other amenities that are lacking in an international airport, Muritala I'Tn aiport is not up to satandard. There is no need constructing another one and let them construct one in the East too because most travelers are Easteners.
