As a former chairman of the Senate Committee on Aviation, he stressed the need to encourage the aviation sector to be run professionally. In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Oguwike Nwachuku, the governor said:

“I have always believed that FAAN must be encouraged to run the sector professionally. The industry is not what people think in terms of funding, the reason for government intervention.”

According to him, the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport Owerri has the potential to do better, if more attention is paid in standardizing the existing infrastructure, including the insurance policy around the airport.

He told his visitors to oblige him with the status report on the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport in terms of what had been done so that he could be properly guided.
