A contract to build a second runway at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, Nigeria, at a cost of 64bn-naira ($426m), has come under review for its inflated budget.

The House Committee on Aviation chairman Bethel Amadi said it is concerned the contract is too expensive, according to Bloomberg.

Amadi said there is no requirement to build the 4.6km second runway at the airport considering traffic numbers are down.

The Nigerian Government awarded the runway contract to Julius Berger Nigeria in 2009.
