United Nigeria Airlines Restates Commitment To Establish MRO In Enugu

Chairman of United Nigeria Airlines, Prof. Obiora Okonkwo has restated the commitment of the airline to build a maintenance, repairs, and overhaul (MRO) infrastructure in Enugu State once it gets the approval of the state government

Prof. Okonkwo stated this during a business meeting with Governor Peter Mbah at the Government House Enugu, Tuesday.

According to him, it has always been the desire of the airline to stamp its presence in the state by building an MRO and strategic head office. He also said the company would expand its presence in Enugu with befitting staff quarters as soon as the state government gives a nod to its request for land.

According to Prof. Okonkwo, Enugu is already the host state of the airline, making it imperative that the vision of building an MRO, head office, and staff quarters gets the approval of the state government.

Joined at the meeting by the Airlines’ Director of Administration, Mr. Linus Awute, Prof. Okonkwo also listed the numerous benefits of building an MRO and staff quarters in Enugu, adding that the infrastructure would expand the economy of the state and add to the governor’s vision to attract more investments to Enugu.

Speaking in response, Governor Mbah, who congratulated Prof. Okonkwo, on the third anniversary of his airline, pledged the support of the state government towards achieving its visions in the state. He said the airline’s desire to build an MRO in the state alongside a head office and staff quarters aligns with the business orientation of his government. According to him, the state government is currently sanitizing the business environment of Enugu to attract investors.

Governor Mbah said the issue of insecurity in Enugu has abated, and the state has put measures in place to insecurity history. He said that his government is ready to welcome and support any investment to thrive and flourish in Enugu, adding that he had laid out a comprehensive plan for the economic development of the state.

To further demonstrate his readiness to partner with the private sector for the economic growth of the state, Governor Mbah instantly nominated his Commissioner for Transport, Dr. Obi Ozor, as a liaison between the airline and his government.
