PASSENGERS COMING INTO NIGERIA WOULD UNDERGO COVID-19 TEST - PTF CHAIRMAN

The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, has said passengers coming into Nigeria will undergo COVID-19 test on arrival at the Nigeria airports.


This was announced at the daily PTF briefing on Monday, July 27th, 2020, by the Chairman of the Task Force, Boss Mustapha in Abuja.


He said: “Considering the importance of international air travel to the economy, the PTF and the Aviation sector are working hard to fast track reopening of the international airspace.


“Most importantly, the arrival protocols for passengers on inbound flights are being firmed up for seamless testing and detection.


“Relevant Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs) will hold further consultations.”


Mustapha, who doubles as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), urged Nigerians to be patient and await the real date for the resumption of international flights, as no date had been fixed yet.

“PTF remains conscious of the significant contributions of air travels to economic growth, and shall continue to push for a safe resumption.


“The next phase is for the aviation regulators to engage with other stakeholders to facilitate an integrated and seamless resumption of international flights.


”I plead with all Nigerians to await authentic information from the aviation authorities, and discountenance fake news and speculation on dates,” the SGF added.
