The greatest risk, posed by the direction taken by the Aviation Ministry, is that the Murtala Mohammed International Airport complex, will inevitably end up being a disjointed network of numerous structures (terminals and other facilities). There will be too much physical fragmentation and architectural disunity. Many will argue, that they would be better off, building a new airport facility. The least, they can do at this point in time, is ensuring that CCECC stay the course and complete all other terminals in the larger Aerotropolis exercise; for the sake of continuity.
Another point that may be raised, is the strong similarity between this terminal and the one being built in Abuja. The Chinese do not seem to be employing the greatest amount of creativity, but given where we have been in the past, at least this, shows some improvement.
