Lagos International Airport Has No Runway Light

The deplorable state of Nigeria’s airports was once again brought to the fore as a pilot, Benson Ikponwosa on Monday said Nigeria’s premier airport in Lagos, the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, has no light and poses a danger to travelers who arrive or depart from the airport.

Mr Ikponwosa said the runway lights were destroyed when the road was resurfaced and thereafter, has not been replaced.

He said: “If planes were coming into Nigeria at night and for any reason the light on the runway closer to the domestic terminal fails then all those airplanes would need to go to Cotonou, Lome or Ghana.”
