On Thursday the 16th of July, 2020, the honourable minister of aviation, Hadi Sirika, during the 51st joint national press briefing of the presidential task force (PTF) on Covid-19, gave a resounding warning to all VIPs and others over alleged bridge of Covi-19 protocols put in place at three domestic airports.
This warning came as a result of report posted on the official Twitter handle of FAAN on Wednesday that an airport official was allegedly assaulted on the Saturday 15th of July, 2020 by the former governor of Zamfara state, AbdulAzeez Yari.
However, the ex governor has denied the allegations, stating that all the covid-19 preventive protocols were duly followed.
In the same vein, Daily trust had reported that the Adamawa state Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri also allegedly bridged the covid-19 protocols during his enroute from the Port Harcourt international airport in Omagwa, Rivers State.
