Nigerians in diaspora should suspend Christmas trips – PTF Coordinator

The Presidential Task Force, PTF, on COVID-19 has appealed to Nigerians abroad to suspend plans of coming home for the Christmas festivities.


Dr Sani Aliyu, the National Coordinator of the task force, made this known during the weekly media briefing of the task force on Friday.

According to him, this was one of the safety measures to prevent the second wave spread of the virus in the country.
“We know that we are going into the Christmas period and we are looking at steps to minimize the number of people we see during this period.

“If you do not need to travel, remain in the country during the period.
“If you are outside the country, now is not the time to start coming in on holiday.

“If you do have to come into the country on holiday, be aware that you have to do the mandatory seven days isolation and you have to be tested and confirmed to be negative.
“We will not be relaxing the rules simply because it is holiday season,” he said.
