Interstate lockdown: FG speaks on date for relaxed movement
Federal government may remove the restriction on interstate travels on June 21, the National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 Sani Aliyu said.
The interstate borders have been closed since March to curtail the spread of COVID-19.
But Aliyu said the restrictions may relax when domestic flights resume tentatively on June 21.
“When we say from June 21, we mean that we are preparing the aviation sector towards that date,” Aliyu said.
“That date may not necessarily be June 21;
either June 26, 28, or even July 1,” he said adding that
“Once we open up the skies to domestic flights, then we would have to review the arrangements regarding interstate travel because you cannot have a ban on interstate
travel and you have people flying from one state to another
Also, the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, said that the date for resumption of international flights will review soon
