Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has described the statement by the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria(FAAN) that he flouted COVID-19 protocol at the Port-Harcourt International Airport on Tuesday as false.
The Governor said FAAN lied because he had his temperature and those of his aides all well checked.
Michika Community TV earlier reported the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria FAAN has call out on Adamawa state Governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, for spurning security and COVID-19 rules.
Speaking on the event, Adamawa Director General of Media and Communications, Mr. Solomon Kumangar, said the Governor only challenged to filling his form, demanding his protocol officer should do that for him.
“Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri and his team subjected themselves to the protocol, including temperature check.
“The only thing the Governor took exception to was filling a form as the airport demanded.”
He explained when the form was given, the governor felt that his protocol officer or orderly could very well fill it on his behalf.
Kumangar emphasized the airport authority was economical with the truth as their only point of difference with the Governor was filling a form, which Fintiri acknowledged should be done by any of his aide.
