In other news, Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 pandemic has appealed to Nigerians abroad who might be planning on coming home for the Christmas festivities to shelf the plan, in the bid to reduce spread of the virus.
Dr Sani Aliyu, who is the National Coordinator of the Taskforce, made this known during the weekly media briefing of the taskforce on Friday, November 13.
We know that we are going into the Christmas period. The PTF is already looking at steps to minimise the surge in passengers’ numbers we see during this period.
But this will primarily be by discouraging people from non-essential travels. If you do not need to travel, remain in the country during the period.
