2,000 Nigerians And Foreigners Banned From Traveling In And Out Of The Country For One Year

Nigeria Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) on COVID-19 has announced the ban of about 2,000 Nigerians and foreigners from travelling abroad and into the country for one year.


This was disclosed by the National Incident Manager (NIM) of the Presidential Steering Committee (PSC), Mukhtar Muhammad on Monday evening, in Abuja.


The Presidential Steering Committee accused the victims of evading and avoiding the Coronavirus Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test in Nigeria’s airports as enacted by the committee in order to stop the spread of the deadly Covid-19 virus.


“Let me assure you that so far we have published the list of over 2,000 people who evaded quarantine in our health facilities. And we have gone ahead to ensure that their passports are suspended, so, for every action there are consequences,” he said

The Federal Government has made efforts to stop the spread of Covid-19 by insisting that every Nigerian or foreigner coming into the country should be vaccinated.
