The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has described the actions of the former Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari as “irresponsible”.

FAAN while condemning Yari’s action said his behavior was capable of endangering the lives of other airport users.

The former Governor was said to have refused to adhere to the safety protocols and procedures put in place at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport in Kano on Saturday.

Yari who was said to have described himself as a “VIP” was reported to have forcefully pushed the officer who was trying to disinfect his luggage.

The reaction to his conduct is contained in a series of tweets posted yesterday by FAAN on its official twitter handle.

The tweet which was titled Public announcement reads: “The Management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) hereby strongly condemns the conduct of the former Governor of Zamfara State, Alh. Abdulaziz Yari who blatantly violated the Public Health procedures (COVID-19) on travels at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport on Saturday.

“He refused to adhere to the protocols and procedures put in place by the Federal Government through the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 by forcefully pushing away an officer of the environment department when he insisted that his luggage must be disinfected.

“The former governor said the officer should have known he is a VIP. This irresponsible act endangers all other airport users, it is unacceptable, and as such it has been duly escalated.

“FAAN hereby cautions all airport users, especially our esteemed VIPs, to please respect the presidential directive by observing the public health travel protocols put in place to protect all air travelers against infection and the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
