Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Chairman of PTF on COVID-19 Boss Mustapha

The Federal Government has yet to take a decision on the possible restriction of international travels due to the spread of the coronavirus.

The chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, disclosed this at 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.”
