The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) says the report in some media that the Federal Government through it has given a directive that from 1st December 2021 travellers without proof of vaccination would not be permitted to board both local and international flights is not true.
NCAA refuted the report in a statement made available to PortNews today by its General Manager, Public Relations, Mr. Sam Adurogboye.
“We want to state categorically that no such directive emanated from the Federal Government through NCAA.
Therefore, the authority is calling on the public to discountenance such news as there is no iota of truth in it.
“On the other hand, we want to enjoin purveyor of such unfounded news to cross-check facts before publishing,” said NCAA, saying it will continue to support all Federal Government initiatives to curb the spread of the Delta variant.
NCAA said, “However, we expect strict adherence to safety protocols in and out of the airports by wearing our facemask, washing our hands periodically, using alcohol-based hand sanitizer, maintaining social distance and avoiding crowded space.”
