It was reported that the Management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, criticised the conduct of the former Governor of Zamfara State, Alh. Abdulaziz Yari who blatantly violated the Public Health procedures on Covid19 travel restrictions.
Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari was at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport on Saturday 11th July 2020. He was said to have refused to adhere to the protocols and procedures put in place by the Federal Government through the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID19 by forcefully pushing away an officer within the Environment.
When the department insisted that his luggage must be disinfected, the former Governor said the officer should have known he is a VIP.
In response FAAN gave a statement saying that such an irresponsible act endangers other airport users, it said such behaviour is unacceptable, and as such it has been duly escalated.
It also said “FAAN hereby cautions all airport users, especially our esteemed VIPs , to please respect the Presidential directive by observing the Public Health travel protocols put in place to protect all air travellers against infection and the spread of the covid-19 pandemic.”
