The Federal Government of Nigeria has revealed that it hasn’t given orders to ban travellers without proof of vaccination from travelling both within and outside the country.
According to Mr Sam Adurogboye, the general manager, public relations of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), claims by some media outlets that the Federal Government was going to ban travellers without Covid-19 vaccination from local and international flights by December 1st, 2021 is false.
“We want to state categorically that no such directive emanated from the government through NCAA.
“Therefore, the Authority is calling on the public to discountenance such news as there is no iota of truth in it. He stated.
He however stated that the Government is ready to enforce “strict adherence to safety protocols in and out of the airports by wearing our facemask, washing our hands periodically, using alcohol-based hand sanitizer, maintaining social distance and avoiding crowded space.”
