Federal Government To Utilize The Principle of Reciprocity As Regards Ban On Flights


The Federal Government has vowed to utilize the principle of reciprocity with countries who imposed strict measures on Nigerians as regards flight to their countries.

This was announced by the Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Captain Musa Nuhu during a briefing of the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 on Thursday.

‘’The principle of reciprocity would be applied. The conditions you give Nigerians who travel to your country – we will apply the same thing. If you ban us from coming to your country, the same will apply the other way; we just hope for a level-playing field on the issue of reciprocity,”
the NCAA DG who represented the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika said.

The DG also said that a meeting has been held with the operators of foreign airlines so as to guarantee a safe reopening of international flights.
