(Business in Cameroon) - Located in the South-West region of Cameroon, the Tiko airport that has an important historical past will be rehabilitated, according to the Minister of transport, Robert Nkili. He made the statement while on a two day visit to the region from March the 6th to the 7th, 2013. As of now, the region has no airfield.
Tiko airport was built by the British while as colonial masters, and when their stay was over, the airport was handed back to Cameroon.
Abandoned, some individuals have been encroaching into the airport land. “Worst still, air transport experts are quick to point out that even the new Tiko council office was erected on the landing air path of the airstrip,” reports the Cameroon Tribune of Monday March the 11th, 2013.
