No date yet for resumption of international flights —PTF

The Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, on Thursday urged Nigerians to disregard “fake news” on the resumption of international flight, saying the aviation sector was working out the protocol on the matter.

Mustapha, who stated this at the daily briefing of the task force in Abuja, urged Nigerians to be patient and await the real date for resumption of international flights.

He added that no date had been fixed yet by the government.

He said the aviation sector had been working assiduously to develop the protocols for the resumption of international air services.

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