  3. This is helpful though, Akanu Ibiam is an Ebonyian, that very airport in Enugu would have been situated in Ebonyi if not for lateness in creation of the state

  4. The process of constructing one in Anambra is currently going on. Very soon, it will commence. However, travellers can make use of the Asaba International Airport for it is the closest Airport to Anambra.
