Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has condemned the behaviour of Adamawa State Governor, Ahmad Fintiri at the Port Harcourt International Airport.
The agency said Fintiri and his entourage irresponsibly violated protocols set against COVID-19 at the airport, and broke traffic and aviation security instructions.
“The Management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) hereby strongly condemns the conduct of the Governor of Adamawa state Alh Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, who arrived Port Harcourt international Airport aboard aircraft 5N-IZY, at 17:08 hrs on 14th July 2020 with 8 others, and who flagrantly refused to observe the Airport Security and Public Health protocols as directed by the Federal Government through the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on #COVID19 by refusing to have his temperature checked, or being sanitised by the health officials. His whole entourage of 8 did exactly as he did. The team that came to receive them drove right through the barricades up to the terminal building ignoring traffic and Aviation Security instructions.
“This irresponsible act endangers all other airport users, it is unacceptable, and as such it has also been duly escalated. FAAN hereby cautions all airport users, especially our esteemed VIPs , to please respect the Presidential directive by observing airport Security and Public Health travel protocols put in place to protect all air travellers against acts of unlawful interference, infection and the spread of the covid-19 pandemic.
It’s the second time in a week that a very important personality will will violate a COVID-19 protocol after Abdulaziz Yari, Zamfara State Governor flouted protocols, insisting as he insisted that he’s a VIP.
