COVID-19: Don't Come Home For Christmas - PTF Advises Nigerians Abroad by lalasticlala(m): 12:03pm On Nov 14
PTF advises Nigerians to shelve Christmas home trips

The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 pandemic has advised Nigerians abroad, who might be planning on coming home for the Christmas festivities to shelf the plan for now.

The advice is part of the PTF’s strategy to minimise incoming travellers from other parts of the world, especially countries currently battling with new waves of COVID-19.

The task force’s National Coordinator, Dr. Sani Aliyu, who stated these during its weekly media briefing in Abuja, however, clarified that if the reason for coming home is essential, such travellers should be ready to observe all prescribed guidelines by the PTF, including pre-travel and post-travel testings as well as the observation of seven days self-isolation.

He warned that Nigeria would not relax its COVID-19 guidelines and protocols because of the festivities, saying the country cannot afford another wave of COVID-19 as being seen in Europe and the Americas.

“We know that we are going into the Christmas period. The PTF is already looking at steps to minimise the surge in passengers’ numbers we see during this period.

“But this will primarily be by discouraging people from non-essential travels. If you do not need to travel, remain in the country during the period.

“If you are outside the country, now is not the time to start coming in on holiday. If you do have to come into the country on holiday, be aware that you have to do the mandatory seven days isolation before you show yourself anywhere within the country and you have to be tested and confirmed to be negative to exit self-isolation.

“We will not be relaxing the rules simply because it is holiday season,” he said.


Warning about the risks associated with indiscriminate non-essential international travels, Aliyu recalled that of the first 5,000 plus passengers tested on arrival into the country after international flights resumed, about 105 of them tested positive to the virus.

He said with about 5,000 to 7,000 passengers arriving in the country every day, “the potential is that we could have up to 150 new cases being introduced into the country every day”.

With your woeful handling of CA-COVID palliatives and #endSARS protests, don't contest for elections again until you show levels of sanity and passed psychiatric/leadership evaluations.

Did you read the post at all? Or did you just read the headline and rush to display ignorance all over the thread?

It's a simple advice to curtail the spread of Covid-19 especially to Nigerians in badly hit countries.

Lalasticla.la, your headline is a bit misleading especially to prejudiced and ignorant minds.

What ever you do just don't close the airspace.
We know they are looking for a means to extort people coming back.
They don't know what it's like to be away for years and the only chance some persons have to come home and see their aged parents this one is saying scheisse undecided

unpatriotic Nigerian

must every comment come with religion?

everything is antichristian to you but you have forgotten those guys over there careless about religion.


We are all here when it was revealed they spend 2.2bn in Jerusalem and Mecca for prayer against Boko Haram in a country where most of it's graduate are jobless.

Both the rep and senators are either Christians and Muslims what have they done to their constituencies? but here you are with your post and comment with all your education hmmmm now I see what Nigeria University shun out as graduate.... no sense


I hate it when all people can see is a myopic and disorganized mind to view things always in the religious line.


lastly read and digest before you comment on topics... Hun is that clear?

a country that the hospital in ASO rock can't treat malaria is advising those who God have save from this so called country not to come and kill themselves because no one will treat them rather we will only use them to pack money in the name of treatment and you are here talking of religion....
