The Nigerian Senate has cleared the boss of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Osita Chidoka, for appointment as a minister.
Chidoka’s name was sent last week by President Goodluck Jonathan to the Senate for screening.
Also cleared as suitable as a minister on Wednesday by the Senate was university don, Sulaiman Abukakar.
While responding to questions, Chidoka said that most Nigerian airports are run at a loss.
He said only the airports in Abuja and Lagos can run profitably.
