Hadi Sirika, the Minister of Aviation, made the statement during the Presidential Steering Committee briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja on Monday.

He stated that the UAE insisted that all visitors to the nation utilize Emirates Airline or spend two weeks in the country of the alternative carrier before entering Dubai.
