    COVID19: Reps Ask FG To Open One Airport Per Geopolitical Zone

    House of Reps
    THE House of Representatives has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to direct the Presidential Taskforce on COVID19 to open one airport per geopolitical zone.

    The House made the resolution following a motion of urgent public importance moved by Muhammed Monguno on Tuesday during plenary.

    Monguno said the House needs to intervene due to reports that the Federal government intends to open only Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt Airports as part of the gradual easing of the COVID19 restriction.

    It would be recalled that the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 announced the easing of some restrictions, however, Airports are still under evaluation.

    In his motion, Monguno noted that “most other countries have maintained local flights for essential services.” Adding that “shut down of the airport will affect businesses and lead to more unemployment.”

    “Several airlines have been laying down workers due to lack of business as a result of the shutdown of the airports. The lack of airports is making traveling difficult due to bad roads”

    The House, therefore, mandated the House Committee on Aviation to ensure compliance. (NAN)
