FG Speaks On Placing Ban On Flights



FG Bans Over 2,000 Nigerians From Travelling Abroad

The Federal Government on Monday refused to take a stand on the possible restriction of international travels due to the spread of the coronavirus.

The development was disclosed by the chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, during a press briefing of the task force in Abuja.

He said, “A lot of discussions is still going on around the calls for the restriction of international travels due to the discovery of new strains of the virus in certain countries.”

“The PTF, Aviation and health authorities including the WHO, are assessing the situation closely and would take a position as soon as a cogent scientific basis are established.”

“The protection of Nigerians remains our primary concern and we reassure Nigerians of our resolve not to relent.”
