It will be recalled that the Federal Government had yesterday announced the approval of the resumption of international flights from August 29, 2020. This was after it had banned international flights as one of its measures to tackle the spread of COVID-19 in the country as far back as March.
This was made known by the Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika who said, “Glad to announce the resumption of international flights from the 29th of August, 2020.”
Reacting to the development, Sowore said, “They are happy to announce commencement of international flights because it is time for their children/wards to return to schools abroad, September is the resumption date for most schools abroad! Nobody is willing or happy to reopen schools here. #Theydontcareaboutus #RevolutionNow.”

Meanwhile, the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has declared that the August 29 resumption of international flights is still tentative.
The Coordinator of the PTF, Sani Aliyu, who said this on Monday, stressed that the date announced by Aviation Minister, Hadi Sirika, was for the consideration of resumption of flights. Aliyu stressed that airport authorities must meet the set criteria before international air transport is allowed.
“We will spend a whole day discussing international travel and how this will be done. And if I may clarify, we said from the 29th of August, we didn’t say on the 29th of August.
“So, very similar to what we did for the domestic flights. Don’t come back and say that we promised we will open on the 29th, but that date is not sacrosanct; but we will work towards it,” he stated.
