The President will also inaugurate the renamed Minna International Airport, agro-processing zone and agricultural equipment.

The airport, which was first inaugurated by former military Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida on June 20, 1990, has been renamed Bola Ahmed Tinubu International Airport, Minna by the state governor, Umar Bago on Friday.
