The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) says it will offer professional guidance on the proposed Lekki airport in Lagos, in line with its regulations and in the interest of safety.
Mr Sam Adurogboye, the General Manager, Public Affairs of NCAA, said this in an interview with the Newsmen in Lagos .

Reacting to the development, Adurigboye assured that the aviation regulatory body would monitor the project from beginning to end when the time comes.
“NCAA is not opposed to developmental strides, and the initial approval comes from the Federal Ministry of Aviation, while NCAA also gives its approval.
“We will also supervise it from beginning to the end and certify it okay before the usage of the airport” he said.
Adurogboye said building an airport around the axis meant infrastructure development, which was good for the economy, the community and the state where it is situated.
Meanwhile, an aviation expert, retired Group Capt. John Ojikutu, commenting on the state government’s plan, said Lagos deserved a second airport.
