The Minister of Transport during the first phase of his visit to the Northern Region on the 6th of July 2017, looked into the latest developments that were being made at the Garoua airport.
According to Friday’s edition of Cameroon Tribune, the Minister travelled to the North Region accompanied by some officials; both ones who had been there and those who were going there for their first time.
As confirmed by the Director of the structure, the usage of the airport is assessed at 5 percent and that since the 1990s, its degradation has only been increasing as the days go by. Reception rooms reserved for VIP passengers, unused passenger corridors and many other parts of the structure are unknown to the travellers as the facilities are hardly used.
Edgar Alain Mebe ngo'o went to Garoua with two main objectives. To inspect work that was already going on, and to see which other additional things could be done in the nearest future in order to fully ameliorate the state of this airport. He equally went there to verify some disturbing information they had received back in Yaounde, relating to the airport
Despite the fact that much still had to be done, the technical director of the company in charge of the renovation, assured the Minister that everything will be well. He said, they started working since the 30th of May and that in 15 days, the Garoua airport will have a different view to its users.
