Nigeria In One Minute

Activities pick up at Lagos Airport, Abuja after Saturday’s polls



Twenty four hours after the conclusion of Presidential and National Assembly elections in Lagos State, flights operations at the Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA) are yet to fully normalize. At the private terminal (MMA2) yesterday, the departure halls was quiet with few passengers arriving and departing.

Daily Trust reports that though the airspace was open on Saturday when the Presidential and National Assembly elections were held, no domestic flight operated throughout the day.

This led to many international passengers being stranded at the airport as they could not get connecting domestic flights on arrival from their respective foreign trips.

But yesterday, a day after the elections, activities have started picking up gradually with few flights operated though.
