The governor said the presentation of the vehicle was a gesture by his administration to support the management in its bid to make the airport conducive for the passengers.
Speaking, the Airport manager , Mrs Ayenuro Tega, on behalf of the management, appreciated the state government for the donation, which she said will enhance security in the airport and its environs.
She added that the governor has been supporting the Airport Authority since he assumed office as governor of the state.
“On behalf of the airport management, Ibadan, we are very grateful to the governor for this donation to enhance security in the airport and the community around the airport.
“He has been of tremendous help to us since he came in. He has been helping us throughout the COVID-19 period. When we had issues on palliatives and materials to be used, the governor came to our aid by donating many hand sanitizers, shields and canopy to the Airport Complex. This is just an additional support,” she said.
