Sam Mbakwe INTERNATIONAL airport_Imo state Nigeria 1A Facebook user’s post on the Sam Mbakwe International Airport in Imo state has gone viral. He said the ceiling was leaking, making the floor slippery – a hazard for workers and travellers alike.

The airport is the first state government-built airport in Nigeria and was named after a former Imo state governor and philanthropist – Sam Mbakwe, who is now late. According to Wikipedia, there are currently only 3 airlines that operate in the airport – Air Peace, Arik Air and Aero Contractors, and they fly to Lagos and Abuja only.

    Last time I passed through this airport, it was very gingered oh. Serious AC things. Very well tiled, enough seats for everybody. I remember regretting I didn’t pack my son’s sweater, it was that cold. If the roof is leaking it means the company that renovated didn’t do the roof properly. That aside, the airport has been really upgraded. These people always rushing to post pictures for cheap popularity. They will not look for manager and complain or ask questions. Just posting so they can be on blogs. Nobody should attack me if you have dissenting opinion. Just state it and move on.

    PH airport (arrival hall) is worse than this… it looks like a camp for IDPs. The ultimate is jos airport no hope… they only fly arik to lagos and that’s it.
