I had the opportunity to visit the lounge . it was very comfortable and the food was really good. I would like to appreciate Christy , she was very hospitable, kind and hardworking. The wifi was great and the massage chairs a great addition. I would like to rate the lounge.

I passed through this airport in a wheelchair as I was recovering from Transverse myelitis. The indignities my children (aged 10 and 7years) witnessed. Being made to stand beside me for over 25minutes and no one offered them a chair. The only solution was for their father to take them upstairs away from me and climb two flights of stairs and leave me downstairs for two hours in a wheelchair. When I spoke out showing my ID cards and where I worked. Then, help was rallied. Meaning disabled average Nigerians are suffering and it took my illness for me to see that. For this I am grateful to God Almighty because I can speak out. Horrible experience with tough lessons learnt.
I can't give less than one star but there should really be a rating in the negative sphere.

It's a great place. Very nice and always busy as I first visited during the festive season. There is food and drinks but just make sure you get your cash ready as it it with other airports. Overall excellent services
