"At the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport on Saturday 11th July 2020. He 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 of the environment department when he insisted that his luggage must be disinfected.

FAAN, however, cautioned all airport users, especially the 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.
