ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news! 

The Federal Government (FG) has published the passport numbers of some 100 travellers, who failed to undergo the mandatory COVID-19 test after 7 days of their return to Nigeria, reports 

Details of the passports were published by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Saturday.

“Based on Presidential authority, travel restrictions are placed on the following passports due to non-compliance to the mandatory Day 7 post-arrival COVID-19 test,” the communique read.

It said the restrictions started from January 1, 2021, and would last till June 30, 2021.

The PTF also confirmed that the affected passengers have been notified and will be prevented from out of the country during the period.

The Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, who is also the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, had earlier in the week said the affected travellers would be published before the end of the week.

Nigeria has recorded over 85,000 COVID infections including over 1,200 associated fatalities, according to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
