The minister, who was asked to explain the reason the international airports in Lagos and Abuja were exempted by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19,  said: “Well, I think differently, this is my individual perspective. At some point, these airports must be closed, this is my opinion. “But like I said, there is Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 to which I am a member. But certainly and definitely at some point, these airports must be closed (Abuja and Lagos), all of them in Nigeria will be closed. I think it is the safest thing to do because these things, they multiply exponentially. He however gave no date for the closure or the likely period.
